Abstract:

A wastewater characterization hazardous waste survey was conducted at Beale AFB by USAFOEHLECQ personnel to provide the base with sufficient information to address a State of California Notice of Violation concerning excessive discharges of boron and cyanide from the base sewage treatment plant STP. The results of the survey showed that the 9th RTS Precision Photo Lab along with other film processing organizations were major contributors to the boron and cyanide discharge problems being experienced by the base STP. Maintenance organizations which utilize soaps and detergents that contain boron and cyanide also contributed to the problem. Keywords Wastewater characterization Hazardous waste Survey.
