Abstract: Municipal wastewater treatment plant operational data from ten secondary and nine advanced treatment facilities were analyzed to develop percentile-mean relations that summarize effluent BOD5 and suspended solids variability. Separate relations for daily, weekly, monthly, and 30-day running average effluent data are developed and plotted so that design effluent requirements can be easily estimated regardless of the particular type of BOD5 or suspended solids effluent limitation imposed.
