Biological Oxygen Demand was measured by bioassay procedure and Chemical Oxygen Demand by open reflux method.
DO meters can also be used to calculate chemical oxygen demand (COD) and biological oxygen demand (BOD), although titrators and respirometers are also often used for these applications.
Factors contributing to rapid bacterial growth are temperature, retention time, high biological oxygen demand levels, and turbulence.

Alternatively placing material with a high biological oxygen demand at the soil surface such as animal manures or other agricultural wastes will be effective in reducing pyrite oxidation.

BOWEN: Treatment of paper mill waste streams using microorganisms to reduce biological oxygen demand (BOD) is fast becoming a "best practice." Discharge permits, municipal charges for processing industrial wastes, community demands, and good environmental stewardship all point to increased sophistication in the waste treatment area.
Measures such as biological oxygen demand, total suspended solids, and sediment levels for observed pollutants state the case for severe contamination, even if dose estimates based on concentrated water samples are too high.
