Description A Class II inspection was conducted at the Ferndale Wastewater Treatment Plant on February 22-24, 1988. The effluent was within permit limitations during the inspection. Laboratory samples, except for influent total suspended solids (TSS), correlated very well. A composite sampler needs to be installed to obtain a more representative influent sample. Bioassay test results indicated the effluent was toxic. Chlorine and ammonia are the suspected major toxicants. Leachate sources need to be monitored for heavy metals.
