A computer model for evaluating a number of strategies for removing phosphorus in wastewater has been developed. The influence on total treatment cost of several non-treatment strategies such as the elimination of phosphates in detergents can be evaluated in terms of the treatment cost at local waste treatment plants. A review of phosphorus removal technology was conducted in order to determine what methods should be included as available techniques in a treatment strategy. Chemical precipitation techniques were selected as being both available and most effective at the present time and in the immediate future. (Modified author abstract)
