Description A Class II inspection was conducted at the Chambers Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant on February 17 and 18, 1987. The complete-mix activated sludge plant was operating very well with no NPDES permit violations observed during the inspection, although a chronic problem with partial nitrification was apparent. The laboratory procedures review and split sample results indicated good adherence to analytical protocols. Two of three effluent bioassays showed significant toxic effects. Recommendations include a follow-up investigation into the cause of the effluent toxicity, a permit modification from regular BOD to carbonaceous BOD, and two laboratory procedures adjustments.
