Summary

 

The paper describes the development of a design and management plan for disposing of secondary effluent originating in the urban communities.  It highlights the differences in approach that a public utility must take, versus a typical agricultural irrigation application.  Costs and requirements for municipal effluent irrigation are many times greater.  The complexity of regulations and agency procurement procedures relegates the actual irrigation system design to a relatively small role in the total project.
