Two duck-processing plants located on Long Island were studied to obtain waste load and water use data for comparison with chicken processing data. Weighted averages for both plants studied indicate water use of 23.6 gallons and waste loads of 0.0419 pound BOD and 0.0289 pound of suspended solids per duck processed. Similar values for chicken processing are 8 gallons of water, 0.025 pound of BOD, and 0.013 pound of suspended solids per bird. Comparisons between duck and chicken processing on the basis of 1,000 pounds of live birds indicate water usage is 3,600 gallons for ducks and 2,300 gallons for chickens; BOD values are 6.4 pounds for ducks and 7.18 pounds for chickens; and suspended solids values are 28.9 pounds for ducks and 13 pounds for chickens. Waste water coliform values were 56,800 per 100 milliliter in plant A and 49,200 per 100 mililiter in plant B. (Author)
