Laboratory studies were conducted to improve algal assay techniques for use in evaluation of sewage treatment processes. Laboratory studies (batch and continuous cultures) were conducted at the Santee California water reclamation plant to evaluate the effect of tertiary waste treatment processes on the amount of algal growth in the treated effluent. Laboratory studies were also conducted to determine the growth limiting nutrients in each type of tertiary effluent. Field tests were conducted using special study ponds and the results of the field tests were compared with the laboratory test results. The laboratory and field tests showed the same relative ranking for the treated effluents. (Author)
