Abstract
The Irvin Plant, which commenced operation in 1938, is primarily a steel finishing operation. A portion receives treatment, consisting of coagulation and sand filtration in the old and new (No. 1 and No. 3) water treatment facilities. Wastewater is discharged from two outfalls (005 and 006) to the Monongahela River. An acid neutralization treatment facility, a waste oil treatment facility and a domestic wastewater treatment facility are located at the Irvin Plant. Waste oil treatment effluent is discharged through outfall 005 and domestic effluent through outfall 006. Wastes from the acid neutralization treatment facility are hauled by railroad tank car to an approved dump for disposal. The Environmental Protection Agency, Region III, requested the National Enforcement Investigations Center (NEIC) to conduct an intensive survey of the U. S. Steel Works in the Pittsburgh area to characterize and evaluate existing wastewater discharges.
