Description: Special Report
Abstract: Two computer programs, both written in BASIC, have been developed to store and retrieve information on existing wastewater land treatment systems. The purpose of establishing these programs is to provide assistance to design engineers during the planning of new land treatment systems by making available the design criteria and performance characteristics of operating systems. The SEARCH program is designed to locate systems with specific design parameters, such as flow rate, waste type, application rate and mode, ground cover and length of operation. The printout from SEARCH includes a list of articles on similar systems in addition to the design parameters. The UPDATE program is used for the revision of information on file. Currently there are about 350 domestic and 75 foreign systems on file.
