A watershed evaluation was conducted by a metro Atlanta utility to examine water quality impacts attributable to an advanced wastewater treatment facility. A biological assessment and computer model were used to assess effects resulting from the effluent and those from other sources. A watershed management alternatives analysis was developed from the results of the assessment and model. The project led to the identification of actions needed to reduce phosphorus loadings in order to preserve water quality.
