Abstract:

A wastewater characterization survey was conducted by members of the Armstrong Laboratory Occupational and Environmental Health Directorate Water Quality Function from 9-21 June 1991 at Dobbins AFB, GA. The purpose of this survey was to identify and characterize the wastewater, determine the appropriateness of present disposal methods, determine the need for routine sampling or monitoring, and recommend parameters for wastewater and storm water analysis. Results of the sampling showed the use of industrial chemicals is being well controlled and present disposal methods are appropriate. It is not necessary at this time for routine sampling or monitoring If the Lockheed Plant experiences an upset in its treatment process, the Air Force Reserves and Air National Guard units can expect monitoring requirements to be imposed upon them under the Environmental Protection Agency Pretreatment Rule. The only need for any routine sampling would be as a result of an upset to the Lockheed Wastewater Treatment Plant.
