Process Design and Operation

Mediterranean climate has a rainy winter and a dry summer. Thus, seasonal storage of wastewater in reservoirs is imperative if all wastewater is to be reused in irrigation. The combination of continuous inflow of wastewater all year round and discontinuous outflow of reclaimed effluents for irrigation determines the annual cycle of this kind of reservoir: filling during the winter, emptying during the summer (Fig. 5.1).
