The paper and will explain the design, optimization methodology, and cost efficiencies of the City of Canton Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) ,the largest membrane bioreactor activated sludge (MBR) process in North America. Flows, unit process and MBR process components and trains, associated support systems, levels of redundancy, chemicals systems and control aspects will be mentioned. Construction sequencing to convert a conventional plant to MBR with little and almost no temporary facilities was accomplished. Construction, and operation and maintenance (O&M) cost control considerations and/or methodology will be explained. Implementation methods considered and used, as well as maximum use of existing facility were instrumental with cost control.
