All the other parameters also show increases of various sizes when comparing the chemical quality of the river upstream and downstream of the discharge point. However, there is nothing in the set of results of the downstream sample to suggest that the quality is adversely affected and it is likely that the aquatic life from both river sites will be similar. Some of the tests listed can be readily carried out in the school laboratory SEWAGE COLLECTION AND TREATMENT 23 Table 3. 2 434 * The permanganate value is another measure of organic matter but it is a chemical oxidation rather than a biochemical one.

The BOD of untreated sewage varies from place to place but is about 300 mg/l, whilst the ‘consent condition’ for most sewage effluents is that the BOD should be less than 20 mg/l. In other words, sewage treatment has to remove over 90 per cent of the organic matter. The majority of sewage works achieve this. Crude sewage, as it arrives at the works throughout the day and night, varies both in the flow rate and in the BOD content, and these variations reflect our day-to-day activities. The greatest change takes place at mid-morning when the sewage from all our wakening activities (washing, using the toilet, having breakfast) goes into the sewer.

The trout Table 5. 0 SEWAGE COLLECTION AND TREATMENT 27 that used to live in the river had long since disappeared and there were complaints about the smell of the river in summer months. The problem for the local authority which manages the STW was that, however good the treatment given to the sewage before discharge, there would always be a lack of clean river water to dilute the effluent. It was eventually decided that the only solution was to divert the effluent away from the Rotten Calder Water and discharge it where it would receive more dilution.
