ITA Releases BOD5:TOC Correlation Research
Download ITA's BOD5:TOC Correlation Study

ITA is proud to announce the release of its BOD5:TOC correlation study Addressing BOD5 Limitations Through TOC Correlations.     This TOC correlation study identifies long-term practices of utilizing TOC as a process control parameter-specifically to monitor the removal of organics in a wastewater treatment process and the utilization of carbon balances.  This study also demonstrates a statistically significant BOD5:TOC correlation to allow a TOC limit to be substituted for a BOD5 limit in permits.  Additionally, an implementation protocol is also provided to help guide wastewater treatment plants in developing a site-specific TOC:BOD5 correlation.    Read more.......

Acknowledging ITA Members
ITA Members contribute data for vital BOD5:TOC correlation research project.

ITA teamed with member utilities from the Town of Quispamsis, the City of Winnipeg, the City and County of San Francisco and Dr. Krishna Pagilla of Illinois Institute of Technology to demonstrate a long-term correlation of the 5-day biochemical oxygen demand, BOD5 and to the chemical oxygen demand, COD to Total Organic Carbon, TOC.  ITAs research team has developed an international investigation of five treatment facilities of various flows, treatment technologies and climates to correlate BOD5 to TOC and BOD5 to COD and CBOD5 to TOC.   Read more.......
