Upstream Nutrient Reduction: MnTAP has launched a project geared towards working with facilities upstream of wastewater treatment plants to help them better-manage wastewater effluent.
Through this project, at no-cost, MnTAP staff and interns can help identify strategies for upstream nutrient reduction, which can:
- Decrease load to local wastewater treatment ponds and plants
- Reduce the burden on our local bodies of water and wildlife
- Minimize pressure and costs for businesses that discharge wastewater
The Minnesota Technical Assistance Program (MnTAP) is an outreach program at the University of Minnesota that helps Minnesota organizations develop and implement industry-tailored solutions that prevent pollution at the source, maximize efficient use of resources, and reduce energy use and costs to improve public health and the environment.
