A trickling filter has the following:
- Average Wastewater Flow: 500 gpm
- Recirculation Ratio: 0.4
- Influent into the Primary Clarifier: 500 mg/l
- The primary clarifier BOD removal efficiency: 80%
- Filter Diameter: 54 feet
- Depth of media: 6 feet
Question #1: Calculate the BOD loading

I've solved the question but I am not sure what units you want these in. Let me know if you have trouble converting units.
The BOD loading rate and hydraulic loading rate are calculated for a trickling filter.
