Paper evaluates two years of data from the upgraded Shepherdstown WWTP located on the eastern-most tip of West Virginia that discharges into the Patomac River. The plant uses a special type of membrane bioreactor (MBR) operated in a batch mode, to achieve very low effluent nutrient levels with less carbon and coagulant addition than standard MBRs. The excellent effluent quality complies with thw 2010 Chesapeake Bay Watershed Initiative (CBWI) to meet progressively lower nitrogen and phosphorus levels.
