This computer program (FORTRAN, IBM 1130) calculates the capital, amortization, operation and maintenance, and total treatment costs associated with building and operating wastewater treatment plants. Both conventional and tertiary unit processes can be included. The program calculates and prints out the costs for each unit process and sums the costs for the entire treatment system. The user need only supply various design parameters as input. It is also possible to input an amortization factor, construction cost index, and hourly wage rates. The report includes a program listing and operating instructions.
