Abstract:

The report contains data and discussion of the results of a field wastewater survey conducted by the USAF Environmental Health Laboratory, Kelly AFB, Texas at McGuire AFB and Ft. Dix, New Jersey in September 1972. Extensive physical, chemical and biological sampling and analyses of these facilitys sewage treatment plants and the surface waters to which the plants discharge were accomplished. The quality of the receiving waters was found to be degraded as a result of the sewage plant discharges. This report recommends that these two federal facilities join in efforts to create a regional wastewater management system, and during the interim period until such a system materializes, maintain the existing secondary sewage treatment facilities with minimum expenditure of capital investment funds. Performance specifications are proposed for the interim period. Alternative courses of action are evaluated in the event the regional management system does not materialize.
