Summary: The scope of this study combines four essential aspects. First, the tests were made with full-scale commerically available equipment, professionally engineered and costed. Second, a test reach was located on a small polluted river extending 12 miles without a tributary or additional source of pollution, in effect, a long biochemical reactor. Third, all aspects of the process were subject to scientific investigation in connection with related research projects. Fourth, moder techniques of basin-wide systems analysis were employed to compare performance aerator systems to alternatives of improved waste treatment.
