That quantity,...
Page 78 - ... contamination may be conveniently expressed in parts of average filtered London sewage, which, if thus completely oxidized in a river, would yield a like amount of nitrogen, in the form of nitrites, nitrates, and ammonia. For this purpose, average filtered London sewage may be taken as containing 10 parts of combined nitrogen in 100,000 parts, as deduced from the numerous analyses of Way, Hofmann, and Witt.
