An effectivenesscost comparison was made between gravity sewer systems and vacuum sewer systems for use in Navy advanced bases. The vacuum systems considered were single pipe system where vacuum toilets are connected directly to a vacuum sewer while the remaining wastes drain by gravity to a building vacuum valve which interconnects to the vacuum sewer dual pipe system in which the wastes from vacuum toilets are conveyed in a separate vacuum sewer from the other wastes and combined system where conventional fixtures are used and all wastes drain to a building vacuum valve and then are transported in a vacuum sewer. Estimates of the daily and peak wastewater flows were developed for a 500-man base for both vacuum toilets and for low flush water toilets. Designs and layouts were prepared for both gravity and vacuum sewer systems for the same base configurations and other design conditions. Author
