This report describes the findings of an investigation on the sources and treatment of industrial wastewater containing metals. The study was performed to assess the existing database on metal containing wastewaters, investigate the state of development on the various treatment technologies being used, and determine whether this information could be applied to water treatment problems in the nonferrous metals industry. The results are being used within the Agency's Office of Research and Development as part of a larger effort to define potential environmental impact of emissions and effluents from this industry and the need for improved controls. The findings will also be useful to other Agency components and the industry in dealing with environmental control problems. The Metals and Inorganic Chemicals Branch of the Industrial Pollution Control Division should be contacted for additional information desired concerning this program.
