Orange Beach, AL. USA Bio-augmentation Program


     Orange Beach, Alabama is a community located near the Gulf of Mexico with a year round population of 4,000. During the tourist season, which runs from May through August plus "Spring Break", the population increases to 35,000 to 40,000.

     Normal off season waste water flows average between 1.2 and 1.8 million gallons per day (gpd). During the tourist season, however, the flow increases to approximately 2.4 mgpd. Due to the increasing tourism, flows are expected to increase to 2.8 mgpd during the 1997 season.

     Over the past several years, the influx of tourist has severely stressed the waste water treatment facility, not only due to increased volume of waste water, but because of higher loading of B.O.D., especially from local restaurants and resorts.
