Pollution and treatment efficiency of surface (rain) wastewater, forming in the production territory of meat processing company LTD ‘Krekenavos mėsa’ (centre of Lithuania in Kėdainiai district), were investigated in the period 2004-2009. On the surface of the company territory the precipitation water turns to surface wastewater, which is collected and sent down to treatment equipment. Wastewater samples were taken before and after biological treatment. The samples were investigated in the Chemical Analysis Laboratory of the Water Research institute of Lithuania University of Agriculture certified by the Environment Ministry of the Republic of Lithuania The following indices have been determined: biochemical oxygen demand (BOD7) – by titrometric method, suspended solids (SS) – by gravimetric method, having filtered the substance through a mid-thickness filter. Concentrations of oil pollutants were determined with the help of a spectrophotometric device of infrared rays IKAN-1 in the Analytical Department of Agrochemical Study Center of Lithuanian Agricultural Institute. During six years of investigation average wastewater pollution with suspended materials was 35.0 mg LE-1, which by 14% exceeded the BAC. Suspended solids determined BOD7 concentrations in surface wastewater by 46%. The best treatment effect was received in the purification of oil products - 96%, suspended solids - 60%, organic pollutants - 59%. The wastewater discharged from the company prod
uction territory to natural environment was clean as concentrations of the investigated oil hydrocarbons, biochemical oxygen demand and suspended solids in the surface wastewater were 26, 4 and 2 times respectively lower than biggest available concentration.
