Abstract

This project provides recommendations for water reuse systems that would be beneficial to the Greater Worcester community, with specific focus on use at Wheelabrator Technologies. A treatment system capable of treating 1 MGD to meet Massachusetts Class A water reuse standards was designed with the intention of relieving industrial use of potable water in the town of Millbury. The proposed system consists of an ultrafiltration membrane unit to control suspended solid levels, an ultraviolet disinfection unit to control fecal coliform levels, and a pumping station. This system could be mutually beneficial to both the Upper Blackstone Water Pollution Abatement District and Wheelabrator Technologies.
