The US Fish and Wildlife Service's National Wetlands Inventory Project
In 1974, the US Fish and Wildlife Service directed its Office of Biological Services to design and conduct an inventory of the Nation's wetlands. The mandate was to develop and disseminate aExpand

Microbial Population Dynamics and Ecosystem Functions of Anoxic/Aerobic Granular Sludge in Sequencing Batch Reactors Operated at Different Organic Loading Rates
The granular sludge process is an effective, low-footprint alternative to conventional activated sludge wastewater treatment. The architecture of the microbial granules allows the co-existence ofExpand

Effects of Wash-Out Dynamics on Nitrifying Bacteria in Aerobic Granular Sludge During Start-Up at Gradually Decreased Settling Time
The aerobic granular sludge process is a promising technology for the removal of nutrients and organic contaminants from wastewater. However, a large amount of the sludge is often washed out duringExpand

Large scale tertiary filtration - results and experiences from the discfilter plant at the Rya WWTP in Sweden
This paper summarizes the results and experiences from the full-scale discfilter plant at the Rya WWTP. In 2010 the WWTP was extended with post-denitrification and a discfilter plant for tertiaryExpand
