parameters studied were: BOD5, COD, TSS, total N, and heavy metals (Hg and Cd).
Results: The results showed that the BOD5 quality met environmental quality standards in May, June, July,
September, October and December, COD exceeded environmental quality standards, TSS met environmental
quality standards in February, March, August, and December, N total met quality standards environment for
11 months, only December did not meet environmental quality standards, heavy metals (Cd and Hg) were
below environmental quality standards.
