The Harriman Utility Board and the Mead Corporation made a study of the joint treatment of primary clarified domestic waste and neutral sulfite semichemical (NSSC) pulp and paper mill wastes. The most effective treatment scheme consisted of a biofilter (used as a roughing filter) and an extended aeration system. Color reduction was accomplished by massive lime and chlorine additions due to the color's dependency on pH. Disinfection was optimum when ammonia was mixed with the combined wastes prior to chlorination. The biofilter's BOD removal efficiency ranged from 3 to 45%. Extended aeration's BOD removal efficiency ranged from 24 to 98%. (Modified author abstract)
