"Full conventional waste water treatment will usually be applied before advanced treatment methods are required. To assess the present state of waste water treatment, the type of treatment now in use and the amount of waste water discharged were determined for the major streams in the country. About 4 percent of 100-mile river basins now have full secondary treatment. A study was made to determine the percentage of municipal waste water present in surface supplies of 155 cities of population 25,000 or more. The maximum was 18 percent, and the median was 3.5 percent. Consideration was given in this study to the possibility of logistical imbalances that might occur if advanced waste treatment were applied to nearly all waste waters ..."--Page vii.
