Average Effluent Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD5) is the BOD5 concentration of wastewater after it is treated and is leaving a Wastewater Treatment Plant. The concentration should be an average concentration, estimated over a 12-month period. BOD is the measure of the amount of oxygen required by bacteria for stabilizing material that can be decomposed under aerobic conditions. BOD5 is a commonly used determinant of the organic strength of a waste, recording the oxygen demand over a five-day period.
