Abstract: A model based on water and nitrogen balances in an effluent storage lagoon and in the soil at potential land application sites is developed and illustrated. A solution procedure is proposed that yields the minimum land area required for wastewater disposal systems given the drainage capacity of the soil and various constraints on the nitrate-nitrogen content of the drainage water. An example problem is solved which indicates the desirability of designing land disposal systems for maximum throughput of wastewater effluent.
