Abstract:

A pilot plant of a transportable, integrated Water Processing System has been developed. The Water Processing System WPS treats nonsanitary wastewaters of the U.S. Army field hospitals either for nonpotable reuse or for surface discharge to the environment and purifies natural fresh and brackish waters for potable use. The WPS pilot plant consists of four units 1 a Water Treatment Unit WTU, 2 a Water Purification Unit WPU, 3 a UVOzone Oxidation O3UV Unit and 4 an Automatic Instrumentation Unit. In addition, the pilot plant is equipped with a Data Acquisition System DAS which has also been developed under this program. This report describes the design, configuration and operation of both the WPS and the DAS.
