NEW! - Design: Wastewater Characteristics (1 hr)

Wastewater Characteristics

Overview -  The presentation will provide an overview of residential and commercial influent parameters of interest when designing septic systems including black and graywater. Key parameters quantified will be pathogens, organics and nutrients. These parameters will be applied to designing systems based on both hydraulic and organic loading.

Learning Objectives -  At the conclusion of this module, the participate will be able to:
  1. Explain the difference between BOD and COD
  2. Calculate Organic loading
  3. Discuss the typical pathogen load from graywater versus typical residential wastewater
  4. Quantify the amount of nitrogen in influent
