One of the major factors affecting the feasibility of hydraulic transport of wood chips is the effect of substances leached from wood chips into the carrier water during the transit period. An investigation was made to determine the feasibility of treating wood-chip carrier water for pollution control or removal of contaminants, or both, for potential reuse. Several treatment operations and processes were investigated, including biological oxidation, chemical coagulation by lime addition, carbon adsorption, and chemical coagulation followed by carbon adsorption.
