BASIC DATA FOR THE PROPOSED STP The following basic data was first of all worked out and stipulated for the proposed sewage treatment plant, on the basis of population, per capita sewage produced, quality of sewage produced, and standards of effluent specified

Average flow= 100 m3/day Peak flow = 300m3/day

Sewarage chartaterstics Influent BOD , 20 OC Effluent Suspended solids Suspended solids pH = 300MG/LITER = 20mg/liter influent= 4600mg/liter effluent= 30mg/liter AROUND 7.5 both influent and effluent

CHOOSING THE TYPE OF SECONDARY TREATMENT Since the desired quality of treated effluent was of high standard , it was decided to design the STP using activated sludge process for the secondary treatment instead of using the trickling filters. Moreover considering the advandages by extended aereation process, specially for smaller plants upto 4 MLD capacity it was decided to use extended aeration type of activated sludge plant, which eliminates primary settling tank as well as sludge digestion tank TREATMENT UNITS The proposed STP will hence contain the following units 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Inlet chamber Screen chamber Aeration tanks for activated sludge treatment Secondary clarifier Sludge drying beds

The hydraulic designs of the above mentioned treatment units is now carried out as follows Peak flow = 300m3/day

Plan dimensions of inlet chamber 1.3x1 m(minimum size) The outflow from inlet chamber shall be taken to the screen chamber A bye pass channel of 400mm dia pipe shall be provided from byepass chamber to final effluent channel to meet any exigencies of the STP

Design of screen chamber 2 nos screen chambers/channels shall be provided as per sound engineering practice The flow from the inlet chamber to screen chamber shall be controlled by C.I penstock gates Qmax=0.00347 m3/sec Assumptions Shape of bar=MS Flats Size= 10mmx50mm (10mm facing flow) Clear spacing between the bars= 20mm Inclination of bars with horizontal = 80 degree(cleaning manually) Assuming velocity normal to screen =0.8m/sec At peak flow, net inclined area required =0.00347/0.8.=0.00434 sqm Gross inclined area= .00434x1.5=.00651 sqm Gross vertical area required=0.00651xsin 80 0.00651x0.9848=0.00641sqm Provide submerge depth 0.3m Width of channel=0.00641/0.3=0.021 m. provide 0.3m Check velocity in duct=0.00347/0.3x0.3=0.0383m/sec Provide 20 bars of 10mmx50mmx20mm clear spacing Screen chamber shall be 60 cm width

DESIGN OF AERATION TANKS No.of tanks=1 Average flow to tank 100m3/day Q=100M3/DAY The total BOD entering STP= 300mg/liter Assuming negligible BOD removed in screen BOD of sewage comoing to aeration Y0=300MG/LITER BOD left in the effluent Ye= 20mg/liter So the BOD removed in activated plant =280mg/liter So the minimum efficiency required in the activated plant= =280/300=93% Ok Since the adopted extended aeration process can remove BOD up 95-98% to Volume of aeration tank can be designed by assuming a suitable value of MLSS and Oc(orF/M)ratio Let us assume MLSS =3000mg/liter(between 3000-5000) F/M ratio=0.12(between 0.18to0.10) Now using the equation F/M=Q/V x Y0/Xt Where Q=100m3/day V=? Y0=300MG/LITER Xt=3000mg/liter(assumed) F/M=0.12(assumed)

0.12=100/V x300/3000 V=83.33m3 Aeration tank dimension Let us adopt an aeration tank of liquid depth of 3.5 m Width 4m The length of tank V/B.D= 83.33/4x3.5=5.95 Say 6m So V=6X4X3.5= 84M3 1. Check for aeration period or HRT(t) t =V/Qx24hr =84/100x24 =20.16 hr Say 22 OK Since it lies between 10to25 hrs 2. Check for volumetric loading Volumetric loading=QxY0/V 100x 300/84 gm/m3 =358gm/m3 =0.36kg/m3 OK Since it should lie between 0.2to0.4 3. Check for sludge ratio(for SVI ranging between 50-150ml/gm) Qr/Q= Xt/1000000/SVI -Xt 3000/1000000/100 -3000 3000/7000 =0.43 But it should be within 0.5to1.0 Hence we will provide 50% sludge recirculation giving SVI=112 Ok 4.
