A pilot-scale field study was conducted to evaluate the capability of overland flow to provide complete treatment of raw comminuted wastewater on a year-round basis in a mild climatic zone. Raw comminuted wastewater was applied through a specially designed distribution system which operated at low pressure and prevented the formation of aerosols. This specially designed applicator operated at a pressure of 1.0 kg/sq cm (15 psi) and was used to apply wastewater to three experimental plots at 7.4, 8.6, and 9.8 cm/week rates of loading. Wastewater and plot runoff samples were collected periodically to compare treatment efficiencies for the three loading rates and to determine seasonal influences on treatment efficiency. Fifteen parameters including suspended solids, biochemical oxygen demand, nitrogen, and phosphorus were used to evaluate treatment efficiencies. The results of this 18-month field study showed overland flow to be an effective process for achieving advanced waste treatment of raw comminuted wastewater via a simple system with no sludge production.
