Abstract:

The water reuse model described in this report was developed to assist Air Force personnel in reusing wastewater on Air Force bases. The model aids in selecting the most cost effective networks for wastewater collection, treatment and reuse in base activities. The model is comprised of two separate phases. Phase I provides a basis activities summary to simplify and clarify reasonable cascade couplings between activities. With this as a foundation, feasible activity cascade networks can be developed for input into Phase II of the model. Phase II provides the following data for each of these networks 1 Requirements for piping and storage. 2 Required treatment efficiencies and treatment chains. 3 Estimated total reuse system costs water purchase, discharge fees, piping, pumping, storage, and treatment. In developing this model, the contractor gathered pertinent information relating to water quality and quantity demands of various base activities and the extent of degradation through use. This information, along with specific data gathered at individual bases, was used to test the cascade reuse model at Davis-Monthan and March Air Force Bases to evaluate reuse potential at Andrews Air Force Base and to aid in the conception and actual design of treatment and reuse facilities at Peterson Air Force Base. The users manual for use of the computer software for this model is published as CEEDO TR-77-26 a description of the software is published as CEEDO TR-77-28. Author
