The computer program is written in BASIC for use on the IBM PC 128K microcomputer. The program software consists of two standard 5.25 inch diskettes (double sides, double density, 40 track, soft sectored). The model is interactive, requiring the user to supply input data in response to screen prompts. There are 25 unit process models in the program, which estimate the expected performance and associated costs for drinking water treatment systems based on raw water quality and design decision parameters supplied by the user. By varying the input data, it is possible to perform sensitivity analysis on a proposed design or compare the performance and cost of alternative designs.
