This course is all about Package plants are pre-manufactured treatment facilities used to treat wastewater in small communities or on individual properties. According to manufacturers, package plants can be designed to treat flows as low as 0.002 MGD or as high as 0.5 MGD. Although they more commonly treat flows between 0.01 and 0.25 MGD (Metcalf and Eddy, 1991).
