Abstract : The purpose of this study was to quickly assess the current chemical characteristics and flow rates of wastes into the chemical sewer line to Basin F. Samples at various locations in the chemical waste sewer system were taken on 26, 27 and 28 Jan 78, and chemically analyzed. SCC was conducting production operations during this period. Results of this study indicate the following. (1) The current input to Basin P is representative of the SCC output at their plant. (2) Residual quantities of pesticides representing past SCC production (e.g., nemagon, aldrin, dieldrin, etc.) were detected in measurable quantities in the chemical sewer waste stream. (3) SCC operations are currently responsible for well over 9O% of all waste flow into the chemical waste sewer line to Basin F.
