Studies were conducted to demonstrate the efficiency and suitability of using dissolved air flotation, anaerobic lagoons, plastic media trickling filters and chlorination as a system for treating one mgd of wastewater from a meat packing plant. The primary objective was to determine if the plastic media filters could be used to replace the aerobic lagoon system normally used to treat the anaerobic lagoon effluent. The overall reduction of five-day Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD5) through the system averaged 98.5% over the ten month evaluation period leaving a discharge concentration of 61 mg/1. Suspended solids were reduced 95.4% through the entire system, leaving an effluent concentration of 90 mg/1 after chlorination. The BOD5 reduction in the anaerobic obic lagoons averaged 82% and accounted for the majority of BOD5 removed in the system.
