Abstract:

The era of uncontrolled waste discharges to sewers and streams is fast approaching an end. Central treatment plants which take waste and treat it on a fee basis are planned but not yet operating. The installation of waste treatment plant may involve considerable alterations to a metal finishing shop involving layout, possibly re-siting and the purchase and installation of additional equipment. Careful study should involve conservation of water and particularly process chemicals - wasted chemicals require treatment chemicals, a double loss. Wasted water means large waste treatment plants.
