The report contains results of a wastewater survey of Moody AFB GA planned by a bioenvironmental engineer of the USAF Environmental Health Laboratory, Kelly AFB TX and conducted by personnel of Moody AFB. Analysis of the Moody sewage treatment plant operating logs for the period January-November 1973 is also included. The Moody AFB sewage treatment plant is a well-run low-rate trickling filter plant, designed for 0.75 MGD. The plant provides excellent secondary treatment to 0.393 MGD of medium strength sewage. The effluent is chlorinated before discharge to Beatty Creek. Some industrial wastewaters identified in the report are discharged directly to the storm sewer system. Connection of these waste streams to the sanitary system should be completed by the end of FY 75 or the beginning of FY 76. The base has received its final NPDES permit. The sewage treatment plant can comply with the interim discharge requirements of the permit, but it will require modifications to meet the final limits that will apply beginning on 1 July 1977.
