Ways to reduce BOD levels

Ways to reduce BOD levels

Ways to reduce BOD levels

(OP)
I have a client who has a convenience store/Dunkin' Donuts. They had an Eljen septic system put in a couple years ago and it is failing. The BOD levels are in the 600-800 mg/L range and we need them in the 75 to 100 mg/L range. It looks like the ST – 40 modulair norweco system will work but the cost is very high ($32,000 just for equipment). Does anyone know of another way to reduce to be BOD levels.

RE: Ways to reduce BOD levels

Reduce water use and disposal of food wastes into the drains. Dispose of food waste into the garbage instead. If you have a garbage disposal in the sink, get rid of it.
