To meet stream water quality standards, community concerns and new industry regulations, a several modifications were undertaken at a Kraft mill. These modifications included a conversion of the existing anaerobic/aerobic treatment system to an aerobic treatment system, the establishment
of a Best Management Practices (BMP) program to control spent pulping liquors and the modification of the manufacturing process to include a new bleach plant, steam stripper and reduced water use provisions. The revised system significantly reduced effluent loads to the receiving stream, eliminated
treatment system odors and addressed new industry regulations.
