Title: Wastewater Treatment Design for Institutional Pool
Author: Bannon, Spencer; Swerdlyk, Nick; Woon, Robert
Abstract: In this paper we present the design for an institutional pool water treatment system in Kampong Cham, Cambodia. The primary innovation is the use of an oil and grit separator, commonly used for stormwater treatment to remove suspended solids, instead of traditional sand or cartridge filters. This concept was simulated by performing theortical calculations and testing a prototype to estimate removal efficiencies. The designed final dimensions of the seperator are 2 m in height, 0.5 m diameter, with a capacity to treat approximately 100,000 US gallons per day to a predicted removal efficiency of 82 percent. Other parts of the design include the implementation of a plumbing network as well as the addition of a self-sustaining power supply using solar energy. The cost of the water treatment system, including the separator, chemical feeder, power supply and other various equipment was estimated at 54,000 CAN.
