Abstract

The purpose of the study was to develop a basis for a relaxation of the limits on chlorine-produced oxidants (CPO) imposed by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) on the North Hudson Sewerage Authority's (NHSA) River Road Water Resource Recovery Facility (RRF). These CPO limits were calculated by using dilution factors (mixing zones) already developed for the RRF for acute and chronic criteria conditions. However, the immediate CPO demand in the receiving water has not been considered. This study was aimed at developing values for such immediate demand, which could be a basis for relaxing the CPO limits. Additionally, the CPO demand profile in the Hudson River water developed under this study could be utilized in the future for developing appropriate disinfection-related conditions in Long Term Control Plans (LTCP) for NHSA CSO outfalls.
