Abstract : The objective of this Phase I research project was to develop the data and design criteria necessary to design and test the skid-mounted sodium sulfide/ferrous sulfate process for small point-source wastewater generators throughout the Air Force. The work done included a paper survey of three Air Logistics Centers (ALCs) Columbus AFB, MS, and Wright-Patterson AFB, OH; laboratory testing of two Columbus AFB wastestreams; and design and construction of the mobile wastetreatment unit. Results from Columbus AFB show the process is capable of removing heavy metals from the tested wastestream to discharge standards. However, there were organic constituents in the Columbus AFB wastestream that this process would not remove and therefore would prevent discharge.The mobile unit was not tested; testing is planned for Phase II. jg p3
