REST AREA WASTEWATER DISPOSAL

RESEARCH WAS CONCERNED WITH DEVELOPING ALTERNATIVE METHODS OF WASTEWATER DISPOSAL IN HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT SAFETY REST AREAS. EXISTING AND PLANNED REST AREA INSTALLATIONS WERE STUDIED TO ESTABLISH CRITICAL OPERATING PARAMETERS AND RELATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF EXISTING WASTE DISPOSAL SYSTEMS. STATE-OF-THE-ART SYSTEMS AND VARIOUS ADDITIVES WERE EXAMINED AND TESTED TO DETERMINE IF SYSTEM EFFICIENCY CAN BE INCREASED. RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE AS TO DISPOSAL SYSTEMS WHICH ARE SUITED TO THE CONDITIONS EXISTING IN REST AREAS, INCLUDING THE DESIRABLE AND UNDESIRABLE FEATURES OF EACH SYSTEM CONSIDERED. /FHWA/
