It has been demonstrated that a measure of the toal organic carbon (TOC) content of a waste provides a rapid, reproducible characterization of the pollution potential of that waste (4, 5).a The TOC determination has many advantages over the more traditional 5-day biochemical oxygen demand (BOD5) and chemical oxygen demand (COD) analyses. These advantages, such as shorter time and better reproducibility, have been discussed in other papers (2, 5).a> b Experience with domestic and industrial effluents (3, 5) has shown that for a waste with a relatively constant composition, the TOC value has a high correlation with the BOD 5 and COD values for the waste. A report on the use of TOC analyses to characterize swine waste effluent from lagoonsb indicated that within the researchers
