Abstract

Incidental loss of phosphorus (P) in sewage disposal works (SDWs) in the Lough Erne study area is examined through a review of the literature, consideration of operating data from U.K. SDWs and consultation with SDW Managers in Northern Ireland. The number, type and size of SDWs in the region is portrayed cartographically and a summary of each sewage treatment process provided. The literature and SDW operating data show a wide range of Ploss between different treatment processes and between different SDWs of the same type. Northern Ireland figures for P loss appear somewhat lower than those observed elsewhere, varying between 5% and 20% depending on the type of SDW.
