    A Knowledge-Based System for the on-line supervision of activated sludge processes in wastewater treatment is presented. The system performs on-line data acquisition from the sensors installed in the plant, off-line data management of results from analytical determinations in the plant laboratory, and qualitative information supplied by the supervisors of the process. All these elements are integrated in the Intelligent System for Supervision and Control of WAste water treatment Plants (ISCWAP), which includes a set of diagnosis, detection, prediction and operation rules, making the system capable to handle with several usual situations (where mathematical control can be useful) and also with some unusual situations (where quantitative and qualitative information must be considered).
