Summary:
The authors consider the ramifications of of recycling treated sewage into the Florida Everglades watershed. This proposal has been prompted by South Florida's water supply crisis, and the continuing environmental degradation by present sewage treatment methods. The authors discuss the biological, geophysical, engineering, and socioeconomic considerations and consequences of recycling secondary treated sewage into the Everglades. They conclude that a very high degree of treatment will be necessary due to the serious and perhaps prohibitive problems involved in the recycling of sewage treated to this degree.
