Project Overview

The goal of this project is to develop a core team of wastewater professionals and academics engaged in understanding and solving wastewater-related problems in Minnesota, with national relevance. The team will promote the use of new technology, designs and practices to address existing and emerging wastewater treatement challenges, including the treatement of wastewater for reuse and the emergence of new and unregulated contaminants. The new technology or treatment methods will also consider the proper management of waste streams and solid residuals, including beneficial resue opportunities, energy generation and resue, and product (nutrient, metals, etc.) capture for marketing and capital reinvestment.
