This paper discusses a regression-based model describing clarification efficiency of circular activated sludge secondary clarifiers. Surface overflow rate was found to be well correlated with effluent suspended solids, sidewater depth and settled sludge volume at three full scale wastewater treatment plants during a six month study. Relationship was verified to be sufficiently accurate for prediction of effluent suspended solids concentration over a six month period at another three treatment plants.
