Abstract : This report reviews and summarizes industrial water treatment practices. Current and projected chemical and analytical procedures are identified. A thorough understanding and monitoring of water treatment operations should provide the necessary data to allow resources to be conserved and to lower the cost of pollution abatement. This can be accomplished by working toward eliminating the sources of pollution in processes and products before waste is created. The goal is to apply knowledge based on the data to provide the most rational use of natural resources and energy and to protect the environment. This report completes the first phase of an effort to review and, as necessary, implement a data collection program in the water treatment area so that the above objectives can be met. The complete effort involves the review and summary of current water treatment practices (this report), the current status and future trends at naval facilities, the development of a program of data collection and use, engineering and laboratory support, and an implementation plan for supporting energy conservation and environmental programs.
