Primary Filtration (PF) is an emerging advanced primary treatment technology (APT) that can be used to replace primary clarification at wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Viability of PF has been tested at a number of WWTPs, and PF has been established as APT that can be used to achieve significant capital and energy savings at WWTPs. Several case studies will be discussed including the full scale installation at Linda County Water District's WWTP in Olivehurst, CA.
