Costs of Treatment for Wastewater Reclamation and Disposal: A Preliminary Assessmentby Pamela Doughman,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: North American Water and Environment Congress & Destructive Water
Abstract: Our objective is to estimate the marginal costs of different degrees of water reclamation treatment (primary, secondary, and tertiary), using the Los Angeles County Sanitation District (LACSD) as a case study. This study includes capital costs as well as operation and maintenance costs to test the model developed by Shuval et al (1981). This study also determines the price which should be charged if the sale of reclaimed water is to pay for wastewater treatment in LACSD.
