The objective of this study was to determine how broadly applicable an empirical mathematical model, developed previously, would be in predicting final effluent coliform numbers as a function of ozone transferred and the effluent demand. A prediction equation was tested on six effluents from wastewater treatment plants in greater Cincinnati. Results indicated that the empirical model predicted with reasonable accuracy the total coliform density in four of the six plant effluents.
