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.
This is more of a conversion type problem.
First we need to know the total amount of solids entering the plant. Add the three flow rates together to get ...
This solution is comprised of a detailed explanation to calculate the mass of suspended solids loading per day.
