This project’s main focus is to perform a feasibility study of existing wastewater treatment technologies and methods which can be minimally altered in order to be integrated into the Army Force Provider system (1). The US Army is the most accomplished fighting force in the world and the key to its successes are the soldiers who risk their lives every day for their country. There is a constant push for innovation and improvement on technologies that would help protect the men and women serving at home and overseas. Base camps now have the ability to be almost completely self-sustainable for extended periods of time. One of the aspects that prevent base camp self-sustainability is the challenge of disposing of wastewater. The integration of portable wastewater treatment technologies into the Army Force Provider system would greatly increase the sustainability of base camps and the security of military missions at home and abroad.
