A design model in the 'Process Design Manual, Land Treatment of Municipal Wastewater' was verified as to removal of biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and further developed to include removal of total suspended solids, ammonia, and total organic carbon by this field investigation. The model and the collected data show secondary treatment criteria for BOD, and suspended solids can be met with overland flow slopes of 15 meters in length when raw wastewater is applied and in less than 15 meters when primary wastewater is applied during warm weather conditions.
