Abstract : Personnel from the Armstrong Laboratory Water Quality Branch conducted an industrial wastewater treatment plant (IWTP) characterization and analysis at Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, 9-13 December 1996. The scope of the investigation was to determine the cause of existing operational difficulties with the IWTP. The IWTP analysis indicated unit operations were performing significantly below design expectations. The cause of the poor IWTP performance was determined to be related to the; (1) hydraulic and organic characteristics of the raw influent wastewater, and (2) modifications of plant operation.
