Use the following to convert milligrams per liter (mg/L) to pounds (lb):

Pounds = Concentration (mg/L) x Volume (MG) x 8.34 lb/MG/mg/L

Note: For many operations, concentrations in milligrams per liter or parts per million determined by laboratory testing must be converted to quantities of pounds, kilograms, pounds per day, or kilograms per day.

Problem: The solids concentration in the aeration tank is 2580 mg/L. The aeration tank volume is 0.95 MG. How many pounds of solids are in the tank?

Pounds = 2580 mg/L x 0.95 MG x 8.34 lb/MG/mg/L = 20,441.3 lb
