Plant/Process Description:
In 1974, the Sanford Sewerage District was directed by State and Federal Regulatory Agencies to upgrade the level of wastewater treatment being provided by their treatment facility. At that time, all wastewater flows were treated in four stabilization ponds which comprised an area of approximately 130 acres. The effluent from these ponds was then discharged to the Mousam River, a relatively small coastal stream. Two miles downstream of the discharge point was the first of two large impoundments, both of which had been seriously affected by the high nutrient level contained in the effluent. The Sanford Sewerage District reviewed wastewater disposal alternatives and developed a treatment and disposal process which would meet the requirements established by the regulatory agencies. The $8.3 million treatment facility is classified as advanced, providing a level of treatment substantially above that of conventional secondary treatment. The plant can treat up to 4.9 million gallons per day, removing over 95% of the biochemical oxygen demand and suspended solids and over 90% of the phosphorus. The facility is one of the most advanced in New England, using several treatment processes for the first time on such a large scale. The design includes the addition of aerated lagoons, chemical treatment for the removal of phosphorus, filtration for suspended solids removal, and disinfection by ultraviolet light
