The Challenge of Meeting New Effluent Guidelinesby W. Wesley Eckenfelder, Eckenfelder Inc, Nashville, United States,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Environmental Engineering
Abstract: Meeting new effluent guidelines is presenting a challenge to the environmental engineer. In most cases, existing plants must be retrofitted which will involve options of source treatment, tertiary treatment, or modifications to the existing process. An engineering analysis of alternatives is required to define the most cost effective solution. In many cases, laboratory and pilot plant studies will be required because of a poor data base.
