Nov 7: The Technical Society of Knoxville speaker on November 7, 2011 was Ted Tyree, P.E., of Knoxville Utilities Board. He described new processes being added to the KUB wastewater treatment plants to help address high-flow conditions at the plants during periods of heavy rainfall. The first new process is High Rate Clarification, where high wet-weather flows are treated using ferric Chloride, polymers and microsand to help coagulate suspended solids in the incoming waste stream more quickly. The second is Biologically Enhanced High Rate Clarification, which enhances the removal of remaining solids and biochemical oxygen demand components of the waste stream.
These processes have been successfully tested at Kuwahee and Fourth Creek, and will be implemented for production at both locations over the next 10 years. These changes will improve the

The November 21 meeting speaker was Roy Arthur, Knox County Watershed Coordinator. He spoke about the work on Beaver Creek. The Beaver Creek watershed has a history of impaired water quality and flooding of the valley floor. It is one of the most rapidly developing areas in Knox County. The creek is on the 303(d) list maintained by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC), which indicates that it violates water quality standards and is too polluted to support many of its designated uses. Beaver Creek is a priority watershed for riparian zone management and protection.
Knox County is classified by the EPA as a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) “Phase II” stormwater community (successor program to the Clean Water Act), which requires plans to be developed to address surface water pollution. The Beaver Creek Green Infrastructure Plan is a pilot project that anticipates a government response to Phase II requirements. Rapid, sprawling, unplanned low-density residential development and corridor commercial development are driving open-space loss, habitat fragmentation, and the degradation of the scenic character and rural lifestyle the area once enjoyed.
The November 28, 2011 meeting speaker was George J. Hyfantis, Jr.,
