Unformatted text preview: a point of mixing. You are told the BOD 5 in the river after mixing is 37 mg/L. What is the BOD 20 at the point of mixing. What is common between the two numbers? Why are the numbers different? Problem 4: A 500 ml BOD bottle is dosed with 50 of sewage and aerated until the bottle’s oxygen is at 85% of saturation. The bottle is sealed. The oxygen level in the bottle is 2.5 mg/l after five days. What was the BOD 20 of the undiluted wastewater sample?
