Abstract
Mechanical and diffuser instream aerators were tested on the Upper Passaic River and proved a practical and economical method of adding dissolved oxygen to polluted streams. The tests were conducted in conjunction with research into photosynthesis, benthal oxygen demand, and mass balance of BOD in that river system. Systems of aerators were designed to provide for meeting water quality objectives of dissolved oxygen, and cost estimates made. Alternative costs of meeting the same objectives by means of advanced effluent treatment alone appear to be several times as great. It is concluded that instream aeration may provide a feasible alternative to advanced waste treatment for polluted rivers, as a supplement to secondary waste treatment. (WRSIC abstract)
