Wastewater Treatment Plant Design Advisor (WASDA) is an interactive computersystem that could support users for designing wastewater treatment plant (WWTP)construction facilities. It is consisting of computation tools and informationmanagement capabilities, developed to aid decision makers especially engineers insolving problem on wastewater treatment process. For design purposes, WASDAcan be used to construct wastewater treatment plant where it uses lab and designdata and information to produce results and decisions to users. This paper describeson how to apply WASDA to perform process design for conventional wastewater,preliminary, primary, secondary and sludge treatments in a minimum time. Designexample of conventional activated sludge will be used as a guideline in usingWASDA effectively. This module is part of various applications in WASDA that canbe a useful tool to design new plants and to assess performance of existing plants.Furthermore, WASDA that was blended with Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) couldbe a simple and realistic decision support tool to design municipal and industrialwastewater treatment plants based on standard criteria and also requirements fromMalaysian Department of Environment (DOE) and Department of SewerageServices (DSS).
