Abstract: Shower wastewaters at a military installation have been characterized in terms of physical, chemical and microbiological parameters. Two treatment technologies, microfiltration and coagulation followed by activated carbon, have been found to achieve 60-90% TOC removal from authentic and simulated shower wastewaters. Quality criteria for recycled shower water have been developed.
