WMAO Water Luncheon – NEW LOCATION

Low-cost Treatment of Turkey-processing Wastewater

WHEN: January 15, 2013
WHERE: Wilma H. Schiermeier Olentangy River Wetland Research Park, Heffner Building, Columbus, OH (map)

Over $10 million dollars has been saved by an Ohio meat processor by treating their wastewater in a new way. A sand bioreactor system was developed based on research conducted at The Ohio State University. This university/industry partnership has saved jobs, money and is
protecting the environment with effluents exceeding the quality of conventional treatment systems. Quiet, clean and simple are the best words to describe the appearance of the new sand bioreactor system constructed at the meat processing facility. Some people might mistake the
treatment system for a park. No odor is a feature neighbors most appreciate.
