What could be the impact of receiving industrial wastewater from a food processing factory that has high COD ~ 5000 mg/l and BOD5 = 2500 mg/l to a municipal wastewater treatment plant that treats domestic wastewater with BOD=200 mg/l?. The factory discharge is about 5% of the total plant flow and at present the plant has no COD limit to meet. The plant operates as a conventional activated sludge treatment plant.
Thanks in advance.
