A MULTIFACETED NATURAL RECLAMATION SYSTEM FOR WASTEWATER TREATMENT AND REUSE
Abstract:This paper will present the Salem, Oregon, natural reclamation system (NRS) demonstration project, an innovative system for municipal wastewater treatment and reuse. Located adjacent to the existing wastewater treatment plant, the NRS totals about 10 acres and includes a 0.8- acre overland flow system, a 0.3-acre vertical flow wetlands, a 4.5-acre constructed treatment wetland, and a 4.5-acre constructed habitat wetlands. Also, 9 additional acres are earmarked for agricultural reuse opportunities. Most of the NRS demonstration project was constructed during the summer 2001 with final completion, and operations beginning, in summer 2002. This paper will focus on the design of the system, choice of technologies, logistics of operations, operational issues, the parameters chosen for evaluation, and how the system will be tested for different operating and influent water quality scenarios.
