A full-scale dump tank water recycle system was developed and demonstrated. A false bottom-ejector transport system removed soil from the water. Clarified water was either recycled back to the dump tank or discharged to the sewer. A vacuum belt was developed for dewatering the mud prior to final disposal. Two types of rubber disc machines were evaluated for the cleaning of tomatoes. Both were found to be effective in cleaning the tomato surfaces using minimal amounts of water.
