Abstract : The Wastewater Treatment Plant Environmental Program is a major program designed to correct operational and maintenance shortcomings at U.S. Air Force wastewater treatment plants. This is a three-phase program, as outlined below: Phase I - On- site diagnostic evaluation of a plant to identify shortcomings and determine what assistance is needed to correct them; Phase II - Preparation of a plant-specific Operation and Maintenance Manual and on-site implementation and support for improving O&M, and/or sampling and laboratory analyses; Phase III - On-site follow-up evaluation to assess the effectiveness of assistance provided during Phase I and Phase II. During the Phase III on-site visit an overall reassessment of the plant O&M was made, the progress toward implementation of recommendations was evaluated, additional assistance was provided and the benefits accrued was assessed. At the time of the Phase III visit, the WWTP opeation had greatly improved. Plant personnel had fully implemented a process control strategy for the plant and the plant performance had improved dramatically since the inception of the project. Th process control and performance improvement are directly attributable to the increased interest and attention being paid to the plant by operational personnel and their implementation of the study recommendations.
