EVEG 3110 Name: _________________ Date: _________ g. What is the flow rate of the waste sludge line? (Assume a value of 400 mgVSS/L for MLVSS if you did not obtain a reasonable value in part f). h. What is the hydraulic retention time of the activated sludge basin before and after the recycle line has been added? Before: After: 3. A perfectly mixed aeration pond with no recycle (return line) serves as the biological reactor for a small community. The pond receives 30 m 3 /d of influent of a BOD 5 of 350 mg/L that must be reduced to 20 mg/L before discharge. It has been found that the kinetic constants for the system are K s = 100 mg/L BOD 5 , k d = 0.10 d -1 , µm = 1.6 d -1 , and Y is 0.60 mgVSS/mgBOD 5 . a) What must the hydraulic detention time be in the aeration pond?

    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.
