Municipal wastewater treatment plants are designed to process a calculated range of organic loading in the raw influent. The calculation of this loading is based on characteristics of the plant’s region, such as population and industry type. Organic loading is most often quantified by the concentration of parameters such as Total Suspended Solids (TSS), Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Total Organic Carbon (TOC), and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD). These parameters all sum a specific aspect of the organic concentration and provide different insight. Looking at one specific parameter can sometimes help determine incoming organic load to the treatment plant, for example COD. COD is a quick test that can measure the reactivity of the influent organic load to better optimize plant operation...
