This Interim Report is for the period of Phase III of the research through December 1977. Phase III involves the testing, analysis and evaluation of experimental treatment facilities installed in Interstate Rest Areas on I-65 near Thorntown, Indiana. Two systems were built, one -for southbound traffic on I-65 - used recycled effluent to flush the toilets. The other did not utilize recycled water. Both systems utilize a waste disposal system based on aerobic principles and all parts of each system are within the rest area building. This Report records the problems and difficulties together with how they were handled from initiation of design of the facilities through construction and two years of operation. /FHWA/
