Industrial Contributions

One or more industrial contributors produce a significant portion of the plant loading (in many systems). Identifying and characterizing all industrial contributors are important. Remember that the volume of waste generated may not be as important as the characteristics of the waste. Extremely high-strength wastes can result in organic overloading and poor performance because of insufficient nutrient availability. A second consideration is the presence of materials that even in small quantities are toxic to the process microorganisms or create a toxic condition in the plant effluent or plant sludge. Industrial contributions to a biological treatment system should be thoroughly characterized prior to acceptance, monitored frequently, and controlled by either local ordinance or by implementation of a pretreatment program.
