Abstract

In one of the secondary settling tanks built within the waste water treatment plant in Bjelovar, resulting from several omissions in design and construction, the increased quantity of sludge in final effluent appeared in comparison to the one that was expected according to the design.

In addition to that, the effect of each modification carried out on the settling tanks has been analysed. 1 Introduction In one of the two secondary settling tanks built within the waste water treatment plant in Bjelovar (Croatia) in final effluent f
