The following values of BOD, in mg / L, were measured on a daily at the effluent from a municipal treatment plant. Prepare a probability plot of the data. Estimate: (a) the average value of BOD, and (b) the worst quality that is expected to be observed once per month (30 days), i.e. , the value of BOD corresponding to a probability of 3.33%. Day : 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 BOD : 56 63 57 33 21 17 25 49 21 35 65 65 31 21 Day : 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 BOD : 21 28 41 36 22 27 24

Problem 6 - G. [ original ] Fig.11-12 is a flow sheet for a typical domestic wastewater treatment plant with discharge into a river. There are six process vessels shown: rack, grit chamber, primary settling tank, aeration tank, secondary settling tank, and disinfection. (a) What “contaminants” are removed in each vessel? (b) What additional contaminant(s) would have to be removed if discharge is to a small lake? What additional process(es) would be required? (c) What additional contaminant(s) would have to be removed if discharge is to an underground aquifer? What additional process(es) would be required? Problem 6 - B. [ original ] Odors from the “primary” and “secondary” treatment processes in a wastewater treatment plant are often detected off the plant site. They represent an obvious “aesthetic” problem, but should they be regulated as an air pollutant? Why or why not?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
