Document Type: Journal Paper


A digital computer program for preliminary design of a nine process conventional system for treatment of domestic sewage is described. Volume flow, concentrations of 11 water contaminants present in the feed stream, and decision parameters for each process are supplied to the program as input. Computed output includes volume flow and concentration of each contaminant at all 20 stations within the system, capital and operating and maintenance cost for each process, and total cost for the system.
