The Delaware River Basin Commission initiated a study of a joint industrial-municipal regional wastewater collection and treatment system for southern New Jersey. Staff personnel determined an optimum collection area for ten industrial plants and inclusive municipalities. Engineering-Science, Inc., Washington, D.C. was selected as design and operating engineers of a 50 gpm pilot plant to treat a composite of refinery, petrochemical, and municipal wastewater. Raw wastewater was subjected to the following processes: pretreatment, equalization, neutralization, primary clarification, varied types of activated sludge, final clarification, and intermittent varied testing on polishing and disinfection. The activated sludge process, at optimum conditions, removed 90 percent of the BOD of the strong predominately industrial waste. The raw wastewater color ranged from 200 to 1800 units color which was readily removed by carbon sorption of the activated sludge effluent. Aerobic digestion reduced excess activated sludge volatile suspended solids 50 percent in 20 days. Either vacuum filtration or filter pressing would be most applicable for dewatering. Pilot plant operation confirmed treatability proposals, developed design criteria and pointed out areas of additional study.
