This work was conducted in support of Crisis Relocation PlanningCRP, a comprehensive effort by the Defense Civil Preparedness Agency to prepare contingency plans for the relocation of population from high-risk areas to protect them from the combined blast and radiation effects of nuclear weapons. This program considered one of the most important functions--sewage treatment--in the host areas. With the possible exception of an adequate safe water system, no other municipal function is more critical for public health, especially during emergency situations in host areas where the population may increase as much as five fold. This report is presented in threee parts. Part I, the technical report, provides background material, references, and the rationale behind the development of the manual, which is Part II. Also discussed is the field testing phase including observations and conclusions obtained from this testing. This part of the report may be of interest to Defense Civil Preparedness Agency and state Civil Defense personnel as well as to sewage plant operators.
