Abstract:

In Wisconsin, a group of citizens has worked closely with industry and professional water quality planners to develop a plan to make a once polluted river fishable/swimmable. This plan, acceptable to industry, calls for some innovative treatment approaches to the river, and allows industry (predominantly the paper industry) to continue operations without additional (costly) advance wastewater treatment facilities. Sidebar on in-stream aeration for a flowing river—probably the first such project in the United States.
