SEWAGE TREATMENT AT ROADSIDE REST AREAS: "STATE-OF-THE-ART"

This review of research covers the Federal Highway Administration study of national rest area usage in 1967, studies in 1971 and 1972, and current research to develop recommendations and guidelines to meet the 1977 requirements of the 1972 FWPCA. Research presently underway at West Virginia University will help in designing future comfort stations for optimum utilization. It will also help in designing rest area recycle systems, a technique which employs treated waste water as flush water for toilets and urinals. Water usage at rest areas, the operation and efficiency of sewage treatment facilities, are also being investigated. Observations are made concerning the extended aeration plant, overdesign of the sewage treatment system, and the need for training of operators of treatment plants.
