The Site 4 plant treats 11 to 12 MGD of wastewater from domestic (80% of influent) and industrial (20% of influent) sources. The treated primary/secondary sludge is dewatered using cloth filter presses to approximately 35 percent solids. The dried filter cakes are incinerated in a six-hearth unit and emissions are controlled with an afterburner, a precooler, a water injection venturi, and tray scrubber. Tests were conducted to determine particulate, metals, and organic emissions at the control device inlet and outlet sampling locations. Incinerator operating data, sample calculations, additional volatile and semi-volatile data, XAD preparation and QC checks, sludge analysis results, and internal audit results are presented.
