  • During a water quality survey of the Ganga and Yamuna of the Indogangetic plain, the assimilation of biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) after the waste outfalls at the urban centers along these rivers was found to be exceedingly fast. During the two‐stage BOD removal in these streams, the early reaches resulted from bioflocculation of waste colloidal matter with river water. It was found to follow a straight line law approximating a BOD rate constant (k) of as high values as 30 to 100day-1 (base e… CONTINUE READING
