Description

Special Report
Abstract: A set of six outdoor, slow-rate land treatment prototypes was operated from June 1973 through May 1980. Water quantity and quality data are presented for the wastewater applied to and the percolate leaving the 5-foot soil profile. Average concentration, mass loading and mass and percentage removal of wastewater constituents are presented on a yearly basis. Tabulations of crop production and nutrient uptake are also presented. Nutrient balance sheets summarize the relative amounts removed by plant uptake, deep percolation and other removal mechanisms for nitrogen and phosphorus.
