The activated sludge WWTS was redesigned to treat wastewater on-site. Irregular flowrates and alkaline wastewater sources contributed to system inefficiency. To accommodate high flowrate fluctuation, the first aeration and settling tank was redesigned as an equalization basin, improving flowrate and BOD regulation, and a pH adjust was incorporated. With these improvements, AFS meets effluent requirements and achieves quality wastewater for irrigation. This analysis of the impact of agriculture on the Greek environment and the socioeconomic factors affecting progress toward responsible water management examined EU-wide policies as they apply to the relatively adolescent Greek practices in water management. The current economic crisis inhibits efficient policy implementation and funding.
