The overall goal of CAPDET is to provide accurate planning level cost estimates. This document provides technical information on the design, quantities, and cost algorithms contained within the CAPDET computer program. This screening tool is capable of providing a methodology whereby a large number of alternative wastewater treatment systems, each capable of meeting specified affluent criteria, can be simultaneously ranked on the basis of cost-effectiveness. This may be of interest to all persons concerned with the planning, design and cost estimating associated with wastewater treatment plants. CAPDET isn't designed as a process simulation model.
