BAGUIO SEWAGE TREATMENT

PLANT

NORTH SANITARY CAMP, BAGUIO CITY


YEAR CONSTRUCTED: 1986
ESTIMATED PROJECT COST: Ranges from 1.576 Billion Yen-2.697 billion yen

DESCRIPTION OF THE SEWAGE


TREATMENT FACILITIES
After removing the coarse material by screening in the GRIT
CHAMBER, the sewage water flows into the PRIMARY
SEDEMENTATION TANK.
In the PRIMARY SEDEMENTATION TANK, 30 % of bilogical
oxygen demand (BOD) and 40% of suspended solids (SS) are
expected to be removed. The clarifier is operated continously in
this tank and the withrawal of sludge is accomplished by
intermittent operation of pumps.
The outflow from this tank then flows into the OXIDATION
DITCH which is equiped with rotors. The sewage is mixed,
agitated and aerated in this ditch. The soluble organic matter is
absorbed to be oxydized and assimalated by activated sludge.
The mixture of sewage and activated sludge is sent to the
FINAL SEDIMENTATION TANK where it is separated into liquid
and solid components.
Supernatant flows into the DISINFECTION TANK where it is
chloronated by using calcium hypopchlorite and then discharge
into the Balili River.
Part of the settled sludge in the FINAL SEDEMENTATION
TANK is drawn off by pumps to be returned to the OXIDATION
DITCH and the rest is also drawn off to be sent to the SLUDGE
THICKENER as excess sludge. The sludge from the primary
PRIMARY SEDIMENTATION TANK is mixed with the excess
sludge before entering the SLUDGE THICKENER.

The thickened sludge flows into the SLUDGE STORAGE


TANK where it is agitated by a pump to prevent settlement and
aerated to keep its aerobic condition.
The sludge is then introduced into the SLUDGE FRYING
BED which is covered with polycarbonate plate roof to accelerate
and maintain evaporation evenm during the rainy season.
