Abstract : Personnel from Armstrong Laboratory Water Quality Branch conducted a wastewater characterization survey at General Mitchell International Airport, Air Force Reserve Facility, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, from 20 to 31 Jul 92. The scope of the survey was to sample various sites around the base and characterize the wastewater. No significant findings were found except for three silver samples on 23 Jul 92 and one toluene sample on 22 Jul 92. The silver was only suspected at one site, and sample cross contamination is blamed for the other two sample results. Overall, the wastewater is typical of domestic wastewater and no significant changes should be conducted on current sampling and monitoring procedures. The Army Reserve Center's wastewater should be sampled and characterized if an appropriate sampling location can be found....
