The purpose of the study was to develop an interactive computer program to aid the design engineer in evaluating the performance and cost for any proposed drinking water treatment system consisting of individual unit processes. The 25 unit process models currently in the program include both conventional and advanced contaminant removal processes and various sludge handling techniques. Technology used in sizing processes, estimating performance, and estimating treatment cost is the best currently available for preliminary design. To use the program, the designer unit must prepare a flow diagram, input the raw water quality, and provide cost and design decision parameters.
