CENTRALIZED VS. DISTRIBUTED REUSE TREATMENT
Abstract:The relative cost-effectiveness of a centralized treatment system with an extensive reclaimed water distribution system was compared to a distributed treatment system with more localized distribution. Under the conditions investigated, the distributed treatment system was found to be more cost-effective. The outcome of the investigation was sensitive to the spatial distribution of irrigable reuse customers, and relative elevation difference between the upper and lower portions of the watershed.
