The Narragansett Bay Commission (NBC) is integrating a fixed film activated sludge (IFAS) process for biological nitrogen removal to achieve a seasonal 5 mg/l total nitrogen effluent permit limit for its 291 MLD (77 mgd) Field's Point wastewater treatment facility (WWTF). Procurement for the selected system supplier, including the system process guarantee and design of the biofilm reactors, was completed in 2008. Design of the rest of the plant upgrades was completed and the project awarded for construction in July 2009. When complete, it is expected to be the largest IFAS facility in the world.
