^Effluent total organic carbon concentration computed from effluent BOD5, CBODu BOD5, oxygen carbon ratio and assumption that 80 percent of organic carbon is accounted for by BOD5 measurement. Removal efficiencies computed for primary and secondary treatment are consistent with data from Gunner-son et al. (1982).

Industrial Similar to the two municipal maps, Figure 2-21 presents the magnitude of the industrial effluent loading of BOD5 aggregated for a total of 1,504 catalog units with nonzero industrial loads. Figure 2-22 displays the proportion of the total nonpoint and point sources load accounted for by industrial waste loads.

Key observations include the following:

• Relatively low industrial BOD5 loading rates (> 0.5 mt/day) characterize many of the catalog units in the western and central portions of the 48 states.

• Higher rates of industrial loading (0.5 to 5 mt/day) are characteristic of the Mis-

sissippi River valley, the Northeast, Midwest, and Southeast. The highest loading rates (>25 mt/day) are indicated for major urban industrial watersheds including Austin-Oyster in Texas, East-Central in Louisiana, Buffalo-San Jacinto and Galveston Bay, and the Locust River, Upper Black Warrior, and Middle Coosa basins in Alabama.

• Industrial loads are the dominant component (>75 percent) of the total point and nonpoint source load in many catalog units associated with major urban-industrial areas, particularly in the Southeast. Although not shown, the frequency distributions of industrial BOD5 loads (as a percentile of catalog units with nonzero industrial loads) are very similar to those presented for municipal BOD5 loads.
