The volumetric organic load is used to design wastewater treatment units. It can be calculated by multiplying the BOD (mg/L) of the raw water by the influent flow Q (m3/day) and then dividing this volumetric load by the pond volume.
Perspectives are different frameworks from which to explore the knowledge around sustainable sanitation and water management. Perspectives are like filters: they compile and structure the information that relate to a given focus theme, region or context. This allows you to quickly navigate to the content of your particular interest while promoting the holistic understanding of sustainable sanitation and water management.
