Abstract: The necessity for affordable, turnkey, portable wastewater treatment solutions spans the Department of Defense’s (DoD) numerous mission areas, from stability operations to disaster relief. Several methods of portable wastewater treatment for small units (600–1000 personnel) exist within the DoD and in commercial contexts. They are at various technology readiness levels (TRL) and have differing engineering parameters tailored to the intended environments and uses. ERDC developed a comprehensive evaluation plan for small unit level wastewater treatment systems intended for use by the DoD and used the plan to evaluate one available system—the Water Phoenix—in a rapid, non-exhaustive study. The evaluation plan focused on three primary dimensions to develop a comprehensive assessment of system capabilities and of compatibility with the various intended mission areas: system performance, operations and logistics considerations, and strategic considerations. The Water Phoenix was evaluated against parameters in each dimension to quantify performance capabilities and to serve as a baseline for possible future TRL research and development of the Water Phoenix or of other portable wastewater treatment and water reuse technologies.
