Contents Notes
Research was undertaken to evaluate the adequacy of using a mass balance technique with daily municipal wastewater treatment plant data to determine combined sewer runoff and overflow characteristics. An hourly simulator was used to generate known runoff and overflow concentrations as well as plant concentrations, similar to raw wastewater data. The daily balance technique was used to analyze the treatment plant data that compared the calculated with the known runoff and overflow concentrations. The bias and variability associated with the mass balance technique are presented together with a theoretical analysis of the effects of plant measurement error. Also given are the unit loads and average concentrations from the New York City 26th Ward Treatment Plant area and the effects of rainfall characteristics on combined sewer runoff concentrations.
