Contents Notes
Cost information for planning is presented for the major land treatment concepts including slow rate, rapid infiltration and overland flow. Cost categories include land, preapplication treatment, transmission, storage, land application, and recovery of renovated water. Curves, tables and data are presented for cost components related to either flow rate or field area. Capital costs are defined as construction costs and other costs are divided into labor, materials, and power where applicable. In addition to the graphical presentations equations are given for the land treatment cost components if greater precision is desired. Much of the cost information presented in this bulletin was first issued in EPA 430/9-75-003 (MCD-10) dated June 1975. Widespread use of that document has confirmed the usefulness and accuracy of the information presented therein. There were 38 cost curves in the original version (Stage I plus Stage II). This has been reduced, by deletion of 17 curves and addition of 5 completely new curves, to a total of 26 for this report. Other changes and additions improve the clarity and accuracy of the curves. In addition, an essentially new text has been prepared. Actual construction costs were used to modify or validate the cost curves to the extent that they were available.
