The biochemical oxygen demand of Potomac River and STP effluent samples was determined during the summer of 1977. The fraction associated with N.O.D. was measured using an inhibitor to nitrification and the oxygen depletion was monitored during long term incubation. The average deoxygenation constants for the river sample C.B.O.D. and N.O.D. were 0.14/day k sub e. The N.O.D. was found to be a significant component of the B.O.D.5 for STP effluent and river samples. The peak C.B.O.D. was associated with an algal bloom of Oscillatoria.
