A methodology is developed to use space-time analysis and ecosystem modeling to assess the secondary impacts of wastewater treatment facilities (i.e., urbanization) on the ecosystem. The existing state of the ecosystem is described with emphasis on the dynamic, periodic, trend, and gradient processes. Ecosystem models are used to project consequences of project alternatives. Incremental and synergistic effects are indicated along with suggested operational adjustments to minimize ecosystem impacts from the recommended project. Ecosystem models are described and the literature on impacts is reviewed. A case study of urbanization at Lake George, NY, emphasizes the usefulness of the components of ecosystem models by linking units from several studies with a new model (LAND). This new model is described and documented. A case study of a new town (Woodlands, TX) indicates the changes in current methodologies which are required to adopt space-time analysis and ecosystem modeling to the assessment of the effects of urbanization on the ecosystem.
