Cost information for two stages of planning is presented for alternative land application systems: (1) preliminary cost screening and (2) detailed cost estimates. Cost categories include land, preapplication treatment, transmission, storage, land application, and recovery of renovated water. For preliminary screening coasts (Stage I), curves are presented relating capital, amortized, and operation and maintenance costs to average flowrates ranging from 0.1 to 100 mgd (4.38 to 4,380 1/sec). Cost calculation procedures and an illustrative example are included. For detailed planning costs (Stage II), curves, tables, and data are presented for 33 individual cost components related to either flowrate or field area. For capital items, total construction costs are shown, and operation and maintenance costs are divided into labor, materials, and power where applicable.
