At a meeting on March 22, 1949 in the offices of the National Aniline Company at Buffalo, New York, attended by representatives of the National Aniline Company; the Public Health Service; the State of New York, and the Buffalo Sewer Authority, the analytical values for phenols in a report of the Buffalo Sewer Authority were discussed. Representatives of the National Aniline Company were of the opinion that the calculated phenol contributions from the wastes given in this report were too great. Exception was also taken to the quantity of cyanide that was attributed to the wastes from the plant. To clarify the values for cyanide and phenol, it was agreed that samples of the waste in question would be submitted to the Environmental Health Center. The results of these tests are presented.
