AbstractIn this paper the components of overland flow systems are reviewed and evaluated for their applicability to pre-treatment of animal wastewater. Consideration must be given to soil, vegetation, climate and topography before this method can be utilized. Its advantage is to offer a low-management system to reduce COD, solids and nitrogen levels in the wastewater, so that the tailwater can be returned to a holding pond for recycling. Further evaluations will have to be made for the prediction of potential soil-salinity problems.
