A system for the automated flushing of hog wastes was designed and operated in conjunction with the biological treatment and recycling of the treated liquid effluents as flushing water. The treated solids were disposed of to farm fields. The system included tipping buckets, overhead siphon tanks, and flushing gutters with the waste receiving primary treatment with solids separation and aerobic stabilization of solids and secondary treatment in an oxidation ditch and final clarification before returning the liquid to the flushing system. Tertiary treatment utilizing high-pressure-driven membranes was evaluated.
