Measuring Chlorine In Wastewater
Federal and state agencies regulate the amount of chlorine allowed in water discharged into lakes, rivers, and oceans. Limits are between 0.01 to 0.30 ppm of chlorine. Chlorine is closely regulated because even small amounts are harmful to the environment. Typically, dischargers are required to monitor their waste streams and report chlorine levels to a regulatory agency.

Sulfur plant tail gas incinerators are used to oxidize sulfur compounds that cannot be released directly into the atmosphere. These sulfur compounds include H2S, COS and CS2. Incinerators are operated at temperatures that are sufficient for oxidation of the sulfur compounds to SO2 as well as providing the required mechanism for proper plume dispersion
