Waste Water Renovation and Conservation, Studies No.23

The Pennsylvania State University Waste Water Renovation and Conservation Research Project reported here is a unique approach to the final disposal of treated sewage effluent. The concept of this research is that the disposal of effluent on land in place of the customary disposal into creeks, rivers and lakes would provide a means of purifying the water and make it available for reuse. This approach embodies the idea that the soil can be considered a "Living Filter" and that the utilization of those processes occurring naturally in soils i.e. biological activities, the screening action of soil particles and the absorption of chemical nutrients by plant roots would serve as a final purifying treatment of the effluent.
