h) What is meant by biological solids retention time? How is it different from hydraulic
i) What is meant by relative stability?
j) "Septic tank can only be considered as a primary treatment and the effluent needs
treatment before disposal". Why?

Q2. A main sewer is to be designed to receive a flow from 1 km2 area of a community where
population density is 200 persons/ha. The average flow is 150 lpcd. What is the design flow
for the main sewer?
Q3. Sketch and explain the construction and working of inverted siphons.
Q4. What are the different measures of organic content in wastewater? Discuss the importance
of BOD/COD ratio.
Q5. A channel - type grit chamber has a flow through velocity of 0.25 m/s, a depth of 0.8 m and
a length of 10 m. For inorganic grit particles with specific gravity 2.5, determine the
(assume v = 1.01 ? 10?2 cm2/s).
Q6. Differentiate between oxidation pond and oxidation ditch.
Q7. Compare the advantages and disadvantages of aerobic and anaerobic systems of wastewater
treatment. Use at least two examples from each to substantiate your point.
Q8. a) Calculate the surface area required for a stabilization pond to serve a population of
1 lakh sewage flow of 189 lpcd. BOD is 200 mg/L hydraulic loading of 250kg
BOD/d.ha. if the average liquid depth 1.5m. Calculate the retention time of the sewage
based on influent flow. Sketch the process diagram.
b) A trickling filter has a diameter of 20m and depth 2.5m. it is operated with a direct
circulation ratio of 1.5 and influent sewage rate of 2 million litres per day. Influent
BOD into the filter is 200 mg/L and effluent BOD is 30 mg/L. Calculate the hydraulic
loading rate and organic loading rate. What is the efficiency of the filter?
Q9. Write short notes differentiating the following :
a) One Pipe system and two pipe system of plumbing
b) Grease trap and Grit chamber
c) Pump capacity and pump efficiency
d) Stabilization pond and constructed wet land
NOTE : Disclosure of Identity by writing Mobile No. or Making of passing request on any
page of Answer Sheet will lead to UMC against the Student.
