# Influent Sample and Mass of Suspended Solids

This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

Influent sample collected from a wastewater treatment plant was analyzed for various solids concentrations. Results indicated concentrations of Total Volatile Solids (TVS), Total Fixed solids (TFS), and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) to be 300 mg/L, 80 mg/L, and 150 mg/L respectively. If the wastewater flow rate into the treatment plant is 10 million gallons per day (mgd), calculate the mass of suspended solids loading per day.
