A study was performed leading to the design of a system to treat municipal secondary effluent to potable quality and allow closed-loop water utilization. A comprehensive literature survey resulted in the acquisition of other 800 papers and reports on all advanced wastewater treatment processes. Summary evaluations were prepared for the important processes. A definition of a set of potable water quality criteria parameters was developed for the specific case of closed-loop water reuse. Mathematical models for performance and costs were compiled for the individual processes. A computer program in Fortran was assembled incorporating the cost and performance models of the processes as subroutines. The resulting computer program represents a mathematical model of the conceptual system and can be used to perform design calculations of optional combinations of the processes.
