  • Inetgrated Planning for Wastewater Treatment and Recycling for a Small Community Development

    ABSTRACTIntegrated water resources planning was conducted for Olowalu Town, a proposed development in western Maui, Hawaii. Total water needs, which can be supplied by a combination of diverted surface water, well water, recycled water and captured stormwater, are estimated at between 1 and 2 mgd. The Olowalu development will generate approximately 0.5 million gallons per day (mgd) of municipal ...

  • Zero-Discharge Treatment System for the Wastewater from Scenic Environmental Sensive Communities

    The “Zero-Discharge” Wastewater Treatment System has been advocated for the scenic and/or historically preserving tourism spots.  The Decentralized Wastewater Treatment (DWT) coupled with the Land Treatment Method has been found to be the most effective treatment system to achieve such historically unachievable “Zero-Discharge” dream. The DWT, normally also referred ...

  • Factors Determining Community Support Leading to the Success of Communal Self-Managed Wastewater Treatment System: A Case Study of Low-Income Communities in Bangkok

    ABSTRACTMost of the existing large-scale central wastewater treatment plants in developing countries provide services to only small, but densely populated catchment areas. Communities located outside these service areas need to establish and manage their own treatment systems. In the Bangkok metropolitan area, the privately built communal plants serving outside areas are usually off-site and ...

  • Innovative Solutions for Decentralized Wastewater Treatment

    Chlorination and UV light are currently the most common methods used for disinfection of wastewater. While these processes are generally well-adapted to community or municipal installations, their operation and maintenance needs present some limitations to assure sustainable performance at the level of individual wastewater treatment systems. As reported in many papers (U.S. EPA. 1999), use of ...

  • An Infrastructure Grows · Decentralized Treatment and Recycling Domestic Wastewater

    THE TERM, “decentralized waste-water management,” refers to the process of treating and discharging treated wastewater in the local vicinity where it is generated. Decentralized systems typically use the soil as the final receptor of the treated wastewater instead of discharging to surface waters, which are generally the receptors of treated wastewater from larger centralized treatment plants. ...

  • The anaerobic baffled reactor (ABR) treating communal wastewater under mesophilic conditions: a review

    A review concerning the anaerobic baffled reactor (ABR) treating communal wastewater under mesophilic conditions is presented. Existing studies indicate strong resilience of the reactor towards loading variations and shock-loads. The compartmentalisation of the ABR is a strongly stabilising factor with feed fluctuations being evened out across reactor chambers. Significant chemical oxygen ...
