The overall objectives of this study were to identify the best wastewater treatment technologies applicable to pesticide formulation plants, and to provide the pesticide formulation industry with a source of practical information on how to comply with effluent limitations. Specific objectives were: Characterization of the industry; characterization of the wastewater produced; assessment of applicable treatment technology; identification and assessment of best practicable, best available, and pretreatment technologies; and identification of research and development needs. A dual approach was used to obtain the information needed to meet these objectives. The formulation industry was surveyed to characterize its operation and identify plants already using good waste treatment practices. As an additional part of this study, data were compiled that had been generated to update the Grady Disposal Manual, and integrated into the format of the original document. The updated manual has been included.
