Three pilot treatment sequences were operated during this study to produce various grades of effluent for subsequent testing as industrial water sources. The testing was conducted in pilot-sized test loops consisting of small cooling towers and heat exchangers. At the same time the renovated waters were tested, Contra Costa Canal water, which is presently used by industry in the study area, was also investigated in a test-loop identical to those used for the renovated water. The study results illustrated that the wastewater investigated can be treated satisfactorily for reuse in industrial applications. Corrosion rates and fouling factors observed with renovated water were equal to or less than found with the canal water. Precipitation of phosphorous was the major source of scale formation while using renovated water for cooling purposes, thus indicating the need for phosphorous removal. (Modified author abstract)
