EVALUATION OF AN ONLINE BIOCHEMICAL OXYGEN DEMAND ANALYZER FOR OXYGEN PRODUCTION CONTROL
East Bay Municipal Utility District conducted a performance evaluation field test of an online BOD analyzer at its Main Wastewater Treatment Plant (MWWTP) over a period of four months (June to September 2001). The goals of this project were to 1) determine if a commercially available online BOD analyzer can accurately track the secondary influent BOD, 2) to determine the analyzer's maintenance requirements, and 3) to evaluate the application for oxygen feed control to reduce power demand. The BOD analyzer was found to be a reliable monitoring tool, with minimal costs for operation and maintenance, that yielded significant energy and laboratory analysis savings.
