Abstract
The feasibility of reclaiming poultry processing wastewater for reuse where potable water is presently required was studied at the Sterling Processing Corporation plant in Oakland, MD, by the Maryland State Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. In addition, extensive study was made of poultry processing raw waste characteristics and proportions of wastes generated during processing and plant cleanup. Effluent characteristics from a two-stage aerated lagoon are reported. The reclaiming process consisted of a two-stage aerated lagoon wastewater treatment system followed by an advanced water treatment system of microstraining, flocculation, sedimentation, and sand filtration. The bacteriological, chemical, and physical drinking water standards of the U.S. Public Health Service were consistently met.
