Reclamation of the biologically treated effluent by filtration through mixed media pressure filters and disinfection with chlorine was investigated for two processing seasons. The reclaimed water was put to several trial uses: (a) initial product conveying, (b) equipment, floor and gutter wash, (c) direct container cooling, and (d) boiler feed. Steam generated from the reclaimed water was used on a trial basis for equipment cleaning, exhausting, cooking and blanching. No degradation of the product was produced as a result of reclaimed water use during these trial runs.
