Abstract : The report contains data and results of a field evaluation of wastewater treatment conducted at Laughlin AFB by a representative of the USAF Environmental Health Laboratory, Kelly AFB TX (EHL/K). The wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) consists of primary sedimentation, primary sludge digestion, and oxidation ponds. The plant was found to provide good treatment to an average daily flow of approximately 0.6 MGD of moderate strength domestic sewage. Certain industrial wastewaters are discharged via the storm water system to a total evaporation pond for disposal. Problems associated with this system during wet weather conditions have resulted in the base's submission of a military construction project to segregate industrial and storm waters. The industrial wastewater will be afforded appropriate pretreatment and discharged to the sanitary sewer system. (Modified author abstract)
