Abstract:
In recent years, a number of papers have been written concerned with water pollution control during dam construction (McCullough and Nicklen, 1971; Sciandrone, 1974; Peters, 1975). These papers described treatment measures undertaken to minimize water pollution from point and nonpoint sources during dam construction. . .This paper describes wastewater treatment used during tunnel construction on Bureau of Reclamation projects and discusses its effectiveness. Further, it discusses legal requirements to meet State and Federal water pollution laws and regulations.
