Abstract:
The soil aquifer treatment (SAT)of two types of sewage effluent is discussed. The tests consisted of the treatment of secondary wastewater treatment plant effluent in a pilotscale test basin and tertiary effluent in a full- scale facility. All research was performed at the Tucson Water Sweetwater Underground Storage and Recovery Facility in Tucson, Arizona. Results have shown that recovered water from the Sweetwater site, which has been recharged with tertiary effluent meets the organic chemical drinking water regulations in terms of dissolved organic carbon (DOC), total organic halides (TOX), and trihalomethanes (THM). Similar results were found in the secondary test-basin. Regeneration of the soil beneath the secondary test-basin also appears to be occurring. Microbiological activity in the soil appears to be enhancing treatment.
