Description A Class II Inspection was conducted at the Central Kitsap Wastewater Treatment Plant (WTP) on November 29-30, 1988. The plant is an activated sludge secondary facility discharging into Port Orchard Bay as regulated by NPDES Permit No. WA-003052-0. The WTP was upset during the inspection resulting in effluent exceeding NPDES permit biochemical oxygen demand (BOD5), total suspended solids (TSS), and chlorine residual concentrations. Numerous priority pollutants were detected in one or more of the samples collected. Most were found in low concentrations. The WTP effluent demonstrated some toxicity to rainbow trout. The sediments were not toxic to amphipods or Microtox.
