The manual presents a rational procedure for the design of land treatment systems. Slow rate, rapid infiltration, and overland flow processes for the treatment of municipal wastewaters are discussed in detail, and the design concepts and criteria are presented. A two-phased planning approach to site investigation and selection is also presented. The manual includes examples of each process design. Information on field investigations is presented along with special considerations for small scale systems. Equations and procedures are included to allow calculations of energy requirements for land treatment systems. Potential health and environmental effects and corresponding mitigation measures are discussed.
