Specific example of education:
Based on the information below; calculate the WAS pump rate in GPM.

An activated sludge process has three aeration basins.  Each basin is 90 feet long, 45 feet wide, and 12 feet deep.  The MLSS concentration is 2,750 mg/L.  There are two clarifiers.  Each clarifier is 36 feet in diameter and 11 feet deep.  A clarifier core  sample indicates that the solids concentration in the clarifier is equivalent to 500  mg/L.  If the RAS/WAS concentration is 5,950  mg/L, find the WAS pumping rate in GPM if the pump operates 17 minutes out of each hour to maintain a sludge age of 15 days.
