Assessment of WWTP design and upgrade options: balancing costs and risks of standards' exceedance

L. Benedetti, D. Bixio & P. A. Vanrolleghem
Numerical models can be used to evaluate design and upgrade scenarios of urban wastewater systems on the basis of their ecological consequences. The objective of this paper is to illustrate a systematic procedure of system design/upgrade. This procedure consists of the following steps: 1) data collection and data reconstruction, 2) model building and calibration, 3) evaluation of scenarios, 4) uncertainty assessment. In contrast to conventional practice, this approach allows to choose the most appropriate trade-off...
