Nutrient Removal Focus of Upcoming Water Management Conference
The EPA's latest water quality initiatives, most notably the proposed numeric nutrient criteria, are generating increased attention on nutrient management practices.... Nutrient removal systems--from conventional biological nutrient removal treatment to enhanced nutrient reduction--and watershed-based strategies for improving water quality are not new topics. What's new is the increased interest water managers have in finding more cost-effective, environmentally friendly solutions to meet more stringent nutrient limits.
"Nutrient Recovery and Management 2011: Inside and Outside the Fence" will bring together environmental professionals from the treatment and management sectors to discuss nutrient recovery and removal, as well as the parameters that influence technology limitations. "Impaired Waters Symposium 2011: Spanning the Water Quality Continuum--From Standards to TMDLs" will look at watershed management issues. The two conferences take place Jan. 9-12 & 12-13 in Miami.
