Wastewater Testing Methods in Missouri

Because all natural waterways contain bacteria and nutrients, almost any waste compounds introduced into such waterways will initiate biochemical reactions. These biochemical reactions create a type of wastewater testing method measured in the laboratory as the biochemical oxygen demand (BOD). BOD is the amount of dissolved oxygen needed by aerobic microorganisms in a body of water to break down organic material present in a given water sample at certain temperature over a specific time period.

There are also chemicals that are liable to be broken down using strong oxidizing agents. Wastewater testing in Missouri involving these chemical reactions is known as the chemical oxygen demand (COD). Both the BOD and COD tests measure the relative oxygen-depletion effect of a waste contaminant. BOD and COD are also both widely adopted as a measure of pollution effect. The COD test measures the oxygen demand of oxidizable pollutants.
