MORGANTOWN, WV, March 31, 2004 -- The latest issue of Pipeline, a free National Small Flows Clearinghouse (NSFC) newsletter, is now online at http://www.nesc.wvu.edu/nsfc/nsfc_pipeline.htm.
Pipeline is written for a general audience, and each issue explains a wastewater technology or theme of interest to local officials and community residents. The articles are presented in an easy-to-read, nontechnical style, and each issue includes a list of contacts and resources.
"The Attached Growth Process - An Old Technology Takes on New Forms", (Winter 2004, Volume 15, No. 1, Item # SFPNNL36) investigates how the attached growth process works and describes some of the newest system designs that use this process.
Attached growth technologies work on the principle that organic matter is removed from wastewater by microorganisms. In attached growth systems, the microorganisms grow on a filter media. Systems using various filter medias, such as gravel, sand, peat, woven textile or foam, are described. Diagrams of these systems are also provided in the newsletter.
This issue also includes a reader survey, which will also be available on out Web site soon. Readers are advised to please take a few minutes to complete the survey.
