In the recent past, the Gardner Wastewater Treatment Facility has not consistently met permitted limits for copper discharge. The goal of this project was to gather qualitative information on the copper in the wastewater flow, such as total & dissolved copper levels, particle sizes, & possible copper sources. Testing was then conducted to determine possible treatment options. It was concluded that removing sources of contamination and chemical precipitation would provide the most effluent copper reduction.
