Background General Manager of Graton Community Services District Sanitation & Parks President: International Wastewater Solutions Corporation Inventor of US patent No. 7,658,851 AN APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR GROWING BACTERIA, for use in wastewater treatment, biological pest management, bioremediation of soil and wastes. Inventor of US patent No A DEVICE AND METHOD FOR THE CATALYTIC TREATMENT OF A MEDIA.
Upgrading Graton: From Secondary Treatment to Title 22 and a Nursery Graton is receiving $6 million Dollars in Funding from the State Water Resources Control Board. Construction of a Tertiary Wastewater Treatment facility. SAF pond algae removal- Fuzzy Filter CoGEN Pasteurization. Title 22. Composting Existing Treatment process a series of facultative oxidation ponds, recirculation, denitrification. Amonox process with White Knight, IOS-500 bacteria, and recirculation of nitrite with influent ammonia to yield N2 gas. Storage Pond Algae & cyanobacteria Control with Aqua- Marine Shadow, a food grade colorant.
Upgrade at Graton: From Secondary treatment ponds to the nursery Suspended Air Floatation (SAF) floats and removes the oxidation pond algae and bacteria as a 5% sludge. The SAF underflow is then depth filtered with a Tertiary Fuzzy Filter to remove algae and bacteria to meet Title 22 Tertiary requirements followed by pasteurization. SAF solids are dewatered in bins and composted to make 40 CFR-503 Class A superior grade bio-solids. Biosolids are used in our nursery to grow specimen trees. Trees, and sedges will be sold to cities for urban plantings and storm water control.
From the oil fields to the wastewater stream Introduction to the Introduction to the White Knight TM microbial inoculator generator and IOS-500 TM Microbial inoculum. How it works with crude oil. 430,000 ppm in 45 days. How it works with FOG. Enzymes break down fats and consume carbon. Benefits Low cost, down stream activity.

How the FOG control system works White Knight is a patented technology designed to continuously inoculate treatment vessels with large numbers of very powerful non-pathogenic cultures of IOS- 500 bacteria and generate enzymes. Airlift mixing recirculation and fine bubble aeration principles bring these bacteria into contact with fixed film substrate and the suspended organic compounds like FOG in a treatment vessel. These pure cultures of bacteria grow at logarithmic rates as they voraciously digest most of the fats, oils grease and organic pollutants that are found in wastewater.

Growing Bacteria Economically FOG control is accomplished by continuously growing and applying overwhelming numbers of the right type of bacteria economically using: FOG control is accomplished by continuously growing and applying overwhelming numbers of the right type of bacteria economically using: The White Knight TM with IOS-500 TM microbes. The White Knight TM with IOS-500 TM microbes. Bacteria are encouraged to Buildup in a grease trap, lift station wet well, or Nursery Tank under aeration. Bacteria are encouraged to Buildup in a grease trap, lift station wet well, or Nursery Tank under aeration. Because of their rapid growth rates, Bacterial Farming techniques are more economical than purchasing large quantities of freeze dried cultures, or enzymes.
