The report documents ambient sulfide conditions and corrosion rates in a sanitary sewerage system, and presents the results of a study that demonstrated that the use of air or pure oxygen were effective in controlling sulfides. The three techniques used to entrain the gases in the sewage included injection, U-Tubes, and pressure tanks. Sulfide control was evaluated at eight separate locations involving lift stations, force mains, and receiving gravity lines. The entrainment techniques studied were not optimized. However, odor and corrosion problems were abated. Preliminary cost data indicated that air injection into force mains, and the use of air with the U-Tube were the least costly sulfide control measures. This report was submitted in fulfillment of Project Number 11010 DYO, by the City of Port Arthur, Texas, under the partial sponsorship of the Office of Research and Development, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
