Radford Army Ammunition Plant RAAP, like most of the Army propellant and explosive manufacturing plants, was built in the early 1940s to supply munitions for World War II. In 1970, the Army initiated modernization programs at its ammunition plants to replace obsolete facilities and improve the safety of operations. As part of this modernization program a continuous automated multi-base line CAMBL manufacturing facility was planned for construction at RAAP to augment the present labor intensive batch process. This paper describes the studies that were conducted to develop design criteria for a facility to treat the wastewaters that will be generated in the CAMBL.
