Abstract : A nonlinear optimization model applicable to slow-rate land treatment systems in cool, humid regions is described. The model prescribes optimal design variables as well as an operating schedule for a facility comprising a storage lagoon with bypass and a single-crop irrigation system. The optimization is achieved by use of generalized, commercially available software that embodies the reduced gradient method. The model equations are presented. The computational structure as implemented on the CRREL Prime System is described, with instructions for use. A sampler problem illustrates model application, and a program listing is appended.
