Enhanced Treatment for Phosphorus Removal
Brown and Caldwell is working with the City of Boise, Idaho, on the Dixie Drain enhanced treatment project. The facility will remove total phosphorus (TP) from a nonpoint source agricultural drain (40,000 acres) and is a more cost-effective and environmentally beneficial means of TP removal when compared to upgrading the City’s West Boise WWTF. Because of its innovative and precedent-setting nature, the Dixie Drain project will be a nationally relevant project watched closely by regional and national regulators, municipalities, environmental groups, and other water quality stakeholders.
