Case Study: Ojai Valley, CA
The Ojai Valley Sanitary District (OVSD) wastewater treatment facility processes an average 1.8 MGD of wastewater per day which is then either reused for irrigation or discharged to the Ventura River. In 2010, the award winning treatment facility initiated a new program to further improve its treated effluent by removing nitrate concentrations to very low level. As part of the initiative, ARoNite process consistently removed effluent nitrate concentrations below the detectable limit of 0.5 mg-N/L. The ARoNite process proved capable of reducing nitrogen nutrient levels in treated effluent wastewater to the treatment limit of competing technologies.
