In this course we will define TMDL, BOD, COD, and DO and explain the effect of oxygen demanding wastes in water pollution. We will learn how to determine BOD5 in the laboratory, BOD reaction rate, k with graphical method. We will also derive the BOD model and DO sag curve equations using first-order kinetics and solve several example problems.

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Identity of water pollutants and their sources
  • Definition of TMDL, BOD, & COD
  • How to model BOD and calculate BOD5 and BOD
  • How to determine BOD rate constants graphically
  • How to develop the DO Sag Curve (Model)
  • The effects of nutrients on water quality in rivers
