The following charges will apply:

  • Flow: 0.515 $/kl
  • BOD5: 0.567 $/kl
  • SS:  0.431 $/kl

The charge is calculated as follows:

C= Q x Cq + Mbod x Cbod + Mss x Css

C is the total charge in $
Q is the total flow in kl
Cq is the unit charge for flow in $/kl
Mbod is the total mass of BOD5 (5 day biochemical oxygen demand) in kg
Cbod is the unit charge for BOD5 (5 day biochemical oxygen demand) in $/kl
Mss is the total mass of SS (Suspended Solids) in kg
Css is the unit charge for SS (Suspended Solids) in $/kg
