The objective of this study was to use algal bioassays to determine bio-available
phosphorus (BAP) of effluent treated by the pilot projects at the main wastewater treatment plant discharges to the Spokane River. This is critically important because it is currently unknown whether the effluents of facilities designed for advanced P removal tend to make the residual P more or less bioavailable compared to conventional treatment processes.
