COMPILATION AND EVALUATION OF PERFORMANCE AND COST DATA OF EXISTING WASTE DISPOSAL SYSTEMS IN USE AT REST STOP AREAS IN INDIANA

DURING AUGUST 1971 SEVEN REST STOPS ON INTERSTATE HIGHWAYS IN INDIANA WERE SURVEYED FOR 11-25 DAYS TO DETERMINE THE BAIC PARAMETERS OF USAGE AND WASTE TREATMENT. THE AVERAGE DAILY WASTE FLOWS; BOD, SOLIDS, AND PH DATA ON INFLUENT AND EFFLUENT; AND COD DATA ON INFLUENT ARE PRESENTED FOR EACH OF THE SEVEN STOPS, ALONG WITH MINIMA AND MAXIMA. THE FINDINGS ARE COMPARED WITH NATIONAL AVERAGES. THE ADEQUACY OF THE EXTENDED-AERATION PACKAGE TREATMENT PLANTS IS ASSESSED. THE STUDY IS PART OF A THREE-PHASE PROGRAM AIMED AT DEVELOPMENT OF BASIC DESIGN CRITERIA FOR A FULL-SCALE UNIT EMPLOYING EFFLUENT RECYCLE AS COMPARED WITH EFFLUENT DISCHARGE.
