The requirements and affects of the combined treatment of industrial and domestic wastewaters were investigated for the Buffalo Sewer Authority's sewerage system. A comprehensive industrial waste survey was performed to obtain the required background information on industrial discharges. This coupled with material balances on the sewerage system provided the data necessary to develop industrial waste control and cost recovery programs. The industrial waste control program for Buffalo included revised sewer use regulations coupled with a permit system and monitoring program. A combination of ad valorem tax and wastewater service charges, based on waste strength and volume were used to recover the cost of treatment. An economic evaluation of the cost recovery and industrial waste control programs on the industrial users was performed. A 95,000 liter/day activated sludge pilot study was conducted to evaluate the affects that industrial users will have on the treatment processes.
