Waste disposal by dumping into streams and waterways increases industrial profits. Such water pollution originated partly because of the abundance of our water resources. However many industries are now accepting the responsibility of treating at least their own wastes, and this will increase. Current methods of falling and bucking, sawmilling, pulp and paper processing, and plywood manufacturing produce large amounts of forest industry wastes. The need for a satisfactory method of disposing of all water-polluting, forest industry wastes is increasing. Finding a profitable use for them is the most desirable, but lacking such a use, they can be handled by: (1) incineration, (2) processing in sewage treatment plants, (3) lagoonins, or (4) disposing on land through sprinkler irrigation or land fill.
