Abstract:

This report describes the overall concept definition for the Solutions Data Base component of the Water Pollution Abatement System WPAS of the Pollution Abatement Management System PAMS, which is being developed for use by DA planners and Facility Engineers to help Army installations keep their effluents within prescribed limits of quality. The concept definition takes into account current and anticipated regulatory requirements. The Solutions Data Base is divided into two subcomponents a technical reference library and a decision-making strategy aid. It will help Army planners who develop and review designs for water polllution abatement systems perform their tasks faster, less expensively, and better by giving them all necessary technical data and setting up a comprehensive technology selection procedure. The reference file will be searchable by either technology or pollutant and contain a narrative description of the characteristics of the technology or pollutants as abstracted from the literature. The decision-making strategy aid will have a logic model pattern to help the Army planner define the pollution problem, identify what is needed to control the problem, select alternative wastewater treatment systems applicable to the problem, analyze design and operating conditions for these alternatives, and calculate relative construction and OM costs for alternatives.
