Abstract:

A general description of a wastewater land treatment system located in a cold temperate climatic region is given. The winter season average daily design flow is almost double that of the summer-fall season 0.55 MGD vs 0.30 MGD. Wastewater is sprayed on a forested knoll after it receives secondary biological treatment. The system is operated during the winter when the ambient air temperature is as low as 10 F -12.2 C. Spray nozzles have been developed that ensure rapid drainage of the spray laterals after each spray cycle and, therefore, prevent their freezing. Author
