Wastewater generated at the exploration camp operated by Hydro Quebec at Poste de la Baleine was characterized, and the performances of an activated sludge process (Oxyvor) and a rotating biological contractor (RBC) treating the wastewater from the exploration camp were assessed. Water consumption and wastewater flow were measured and their fluctuations defined. Flow-proportioned samples were analyzed for total BOD5, filtered BOD5, total COD, filtered COD, filtered TKN, filtered orthophosphates, alkalinity, pH, oil and grease, total suspended solids and volatile suspended solids. Liquid temperature and ambient air temperature were recorded at the time of sample collection.
