BIOLOGICAL TREATMENT OF DIFFICULT WASTES

Toxicity
Things that can cause toxicity include many of the following:
     Metals: lead, antimony, copper, zinc, chromium, cadmium, nickel, manganese
(permanganate), sliver,
    Oxidizers: chlorine, chloramines, any of the group VII compounds in the
periodic table, permanganates, ozone, fluorine, iodine, peroxides, and
so on.
             All of these compounds are direct toxins, because they directly interfere
with the biological [....]

Calculation of Bacterial Density

Calculation of bacterial density.

        The determination of indicator bacteria, total coliform, fecal coliform, and fecal streptococcus or enterococcus is very important for assessing the quality of natural waters, drinking-waters, and wastewaters.

             The procedures for enumeration of these organisms are presented elsewhere (APHA et al., 1995).

          Examinations of indicator bacterial density in water and in wastewater are generally performed by using [....]

It is largely the water supply of a community [....]
