<emphasis role="bold">EQUALIZATION</emphasis>Accommodating wide variations in flow rates and organic mass loadings is one of the primary challenges in the design of WWTPs. Efficiency, reliability, and control of unit process operations within the plant can be affected adversely by the cyclic nature of waste generation, resulting in possible violations of effluent standards unless treatment processes account for peak conditions. Equalization also can be used to minimize sizing of downstream processes in wastewater facilities. This section will address the equalization processes for pretreatment facilities only.Equalization typically is designed to …
