Contents: Introduction to on-site and decentralized wastewater treatment and typical components of DEWATS systems. Discusses pre-treatment, primary treatment, secondary treatment, disinfection, reuse and recycling --
The DEWATS decision model --
critical inputs (source and site) and the DEWATS decision-making process --
Characterizing the Source by determining hydraulic and organic loading --
Identifying fluctuations in flow, anddentifying other source factors that might impact upon the technology decisions --
Evaluating the Site: oDrawing the site plan. Includes checklists, setbacks and examples. oDetermining available area for wastewater components --
oTesting the soils for depth, bearing capacity and permeability. oDiscusses percolation testing and soils evaluation as methods for determining permeability. oChecking the slope and drawing topography oEvaluating water resources --
groundwater and surface water, and methods for collecting anecdotal information to determine flood plain elevations --
oUnderstanding the local land-use issues --
oEvaluating social issues related to the site --
Using Collected Data for DEWATS Decision-making --
Case studies, practical exercises, Interfacing with other resources.
