ABSTRACT
The present paper starts with a review of existing wastewater treatment systems and
mentions how to improve and optimize the plant components operation. The case study is for a wastewater treatment plant of high capacity, serving a village of aprox.75.000 inhabitants. The analysis method is based on efficiency monitoring of reduction reaction of nitrogen through the biological treatment phase. There are highlighted the technical and economic efficiencies of comparative solutions. Thus obtained internal architectures for existing urban wastewater treatment plants adapted to the concrete situation occurred at some point during their operation.

Keywords: wastewater treatment plant, nitrogen reduction, operation optimization,
