Factors that play a role in sewage chlorination were examined in a preliminary report. It was found that: (1) control of oxidation appears as a vital factor in conditioning sewage for chlorination; (2) amino acids increase chlorine demand drastically and interfere seriously with chlorine disinfection; (3) moderate aeration with sewage bacteria sharply reduces the interference of amino acids with chlorination; (4) septic sewage is characterized by a very high chlorine demand; and (5) the orthotolidine test for residual chlorine appeared as a satisfactory test for estimating the chlorine requirement for acceptable disinfection of Hyde Park sewage.
