Five pilot scale wastewater treatment processes providing less than secondary treatment were evaluated for capability to remove priority pollutants from municipal wastewater. The selected processes were primary clarification plus filtration, chemical clarification, high rate trickling filter, aerated lagoon and facultative lagoon. A conventional activated sludge system was operated in parallel with the alternative processes to serve as a control. Wastewater feed was spiked with 21 organics dissolved in toluene. Removals of ambient levels of five metals were also determined. The control activated sludge provided the best removals of organics.
