.The objective of this work is to evaluate the potential of a sequencing
batch bioreactor for the treatment of wastewaters containing herbicides.
In phase I, we are focusing specifically on treatment of atrazine and
2,4-D. Our specific goals are to determine optimal HRT, evaluate the
system performance under long HRTs and low temperature simulating low
treatment volumes during winter months, and to determine feasibility
for achievement of biotreatment goals with synthetic and actual rinsewater.
Pending the results of phase I, phase II will aim to focus on pilot-scale
