This report summarizes the discussions of the workshop. The primary purpose of the workshop was to define and establish priorities for research needed to automate wastewater treatment plants. Also, addressed is the effect of automation on the design and operation of wastewater recycle systems. The workshop indicated a need for an information clearinghouse, international exchange of data, and projected a philosophy of wastewater renovation as opposed to processing wastewater to the minimum quality requirements. The cost effective application of instrumentation and automation to wastewater management systems will be a key to implementing this philosophy.
