It is the purpose of this paper to present the results of a nine month investigation in the UCLA Water Quality Control Laboratory. The effort was specifically addressed to verification and development of a wastewater treatment technique which would: 1) Require little or no operation attention; 2) conserve energy and other resources as compared to conventional wastewater treatment systems; 3) produce an effluent quality comparable or better than secondary effluents; and 4) require little or no engineering expertise for implementation.
