Four AEES demonstration projects, funded in part with special appropriations by the US Congress, were designed to show the ways in which this technology could be employed in various wastewater treatment applications. The demonstration projects were located in Frederick County, MD, South Burlington, VT, Harwich, MA and San Francisco, CA. An independent sampling and data collection effort was undertaken at the Frederick site since it was expected to be operating at 'steady state' conditions when the study commenced. This performance assessment examined the ability of the Fredrick 'Living Machine' to meet its process goals and also looked at the contribution of the macrophytic plants to the treatment process. In addition to process performance, the evaluation also looked at the economics of the AEES technology, comparing costs for construction and operation with conventional wastewater treatment technologies for a range of design flow rates (40,000 gpd to 1,000,000 gpd).
