Effect of Wastewater Characteristics on the Sulfide Problem (abstract)

by George Tchobanglous, Univ of California, Davis, CA, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Environmental Engineering


This paper presents an overview of various wastewater characteristics with which the designer should be familiar, and the effect of those characteristics on the sulfide problem, including treatability, odor generation, and corrosion. Characteristics addressed include sewage COD, BOD, and temperature, pH, sulphate and sulfide levels in the sewage, and H//2S gas levels in the sewer airway. Also discussed are the effect of the percent soluble BOD in the wastewater and in-line pH shifts, with particular emphasis on cannery wastes and other industrial discharges.
