Contents Notes
A six-month monitoring and wastewater treatment plant effluent upgrading program was carried out at Abitibi-Northern Wood Preservers Limited, Thunder Bay, Ontario, a plant which preserves wood with creosote, pentachlorophenol (PCP) and chromated copper arsenate (CCA). Treatment of the wastewater, after oil separation and flow equalization by the extended aeration activated sludge process, gave good removal of most organics; however, PCP removal averaged only 35% and the effluent was toxic to rainbow trout. Treatment of the activated sludge effluent by carbon adsorption resulted in effective PCP removal and non-toxic effluents. Activated carbon treatment of wastewaters, after oil separation and flow equalization, gave good removals of organics and PCP.
