Instream Aeration of Polluted Rivers
S. Yu, F. Dittman, J. Hunter, William Whipple Jr., Burton Davidson
The scope of this study combines four essential aspects. First, the tests were made with full-scale commerically available equipment, professionally engineered and costed. Second, a test reach was located on a small polluted river extending 12 miles without a tributary or additional source of pollution, in effect, a long biochemical reactor. Third, all aspects of the process were subject to scientific investigation in connection with related research projects. Fourth, moder techniques of basin-wide systems analysis were employed to compare performance aerator systems to alternatives of improved waste treatment.
