The United States Steel Corporation (USSC) Edgar Thomson (ET) Plant is a basic steel production facility producing steel ingots which in turn are rolled into slabs. The majority of these slabs are conveyed by rail to the Irvin Plant where they are converted into various finished steel and tin products. The ET Plant consists of a sintering plant, five blast furnaces (BF), two basic oxygen furnaces, a 44-inch slab mill and an ingot mold foundry. Two intake stations on the Monongahela River supply the facility with up to 795,000 cu m/day (210 mgd) of water with only a small portion of this water being treated. The plant discharges wastewater from five outfalls (001, 002, 003, 004 and 010) which, with the exception of 001, discharge into the Monongahela River. Outfall 001 discharges to Turtle Creek, a tributary of the Monongahela River. In-plant monitoring was conducted during the period July 22 to August 5, 1975. This report discusses the findings of the survey and compares the loads discharged during the above period with the waste load limitations proposed by the USSC in their amended adjudicatory hearing request of March 3, 1975.
