Abstract:

A statistical evaluation of a variety of sewage treatment methods indicates that MIL-S-24201SHIPS should be revised with respect to performance requirements for the reduction of coliform most probable number density counts made after chlorination treatment of sanitary wastes. Such a proposed revision of the specification is given in this report which also indicates the coliform density for large samples of either untreated or treated sewage tends to follow a lognormal frequency distribution.
