The slaughtering and dressing of poultry is one of the smaller industries but nevertheless a very important one. Modern development has been towards centralization of poultry plants. In certain areas of the country where poultry processing establishments have concentrated, the problem of waste disposal is critical. Even one plant of average size or greater may pose a serious waste problem in a small town. The study was undertaken because of the interest shown by regulatory agencies, industry, consulting engineers, and others concerned with water use and waste disposal. The primary intent of this report is to show suitable means of waste water utilization, reduction, and disposal. Although much of the information has been obtained from the published record, considerable data have been derived from field investigation and contacts with many people vitally interested in the poultry industry.
