This report is concerned with media disposition of specific priority pollutants. Composite samples were obtained from the influent, effluent, residuals, and air from 12 industrial biological treatment systems. These samples were extracted and analyzed by gas chromatography for organic constituents, by atomic absorption for metals, and by EPA methodology for phenolics, cyanide, and mercury. Participating industries included: (1) organics and plastics, (2) pharmaceuticals, (3) pesticides, (4) rubber, (5) wood preservative, and (6) petroleum refining. The data in this report represent potential disposition of specific priority pollutants during 3-day study periods and should not be construed to represent a mass balance study.
