Abstract The report gives results of an assessment of the toxicity treatability of wastewaters from eight steelmaking subcategories, all considered assessable under the somewhat low production levels of the study period. Tests were conducted using prescribed procedures for conventional water contaminants, toxic organics, and static bioassay. Samples were collected before and after units of the wastewater treatment systems. All tests were done under the auspices of a quality assurance program. Efforts were made to ensure representativeness of all samples; e.g., if the production facilities were operating only one turn, samples were collected only during that turn. Results show the relative toxicity and variability of wastewaters from the different manufacturing subcategories and the reductions in toxicity. Relationships between pollutant content and toxicity are examined with cognizance of the possible site uniqueness of the data.
