This report discusses unit processes and combinations of unit processes that are capable of removing contaminants included in the National Interim Primary Drinking Water Regulations. Construction and operation and maintenance cost curves are presented for 99 unit processes that are considered to be especially applicable to contaminant removal. Volume 2 presents cost curves applicable to large water supply systems with treatment capacities between 1 and 200 mgd, as well as information on virus and asbestos removal. For each unit process included in this report, conceptual designs were formulated, and construction costs were then developed using the conceptual designs. Operation and maintenance requirements were determined individually for three categories: Energy, maintenance material, and labor. Costs are in October 1978 dollars.
August 1979. Includes bibliographical references.
