(a) 20.4 mg/l
(b) 25.4 mg/l
(c) 70.4 mg/l
(d) 104.4 mg/l

(b) A-1, B-4, C-3, D-2
(c) A-3, B-2, C-1, D-4
(d) A-2, B-3, C-1, D-4
Q5. The following bearing were observed while traversing with a compass, which stations are affected by local attraction?
(a) C and D
(b) A and D
(c) A and B
(d) B and C
Q6. Calculate the reduced level (m) of a point A, if the staff reading at point A and Benchmark are 2.9 m and 2.6 m respectively. The reduced level of the benchmark is 100 m.
BOD of stream (BOD_s) = 200 mg/l
Flow rate of stream (Q_s ) = 50 m^3/sec.
BOD of river (BOD_R ) = 8 mg/l
Flow rate of river (Q_R ) = 500 mg/l
(BOD_mix ) = ?
= 25.45 mg/l
Sol. Self-cleansing velocity is such flow velocity as would be sufficient to flush out any deposited solids in the sewer. A sewer is commonly designed to attain the self-cleansing velocity at minimum hourly rate of flow.
Sol. Intercepting trap is used to prevent entry of foul sewer gases into the water closet by providing a water seal.
Sol. Pull correction → ±(P_f-P_s )L/AE
Sag correction → (-l)/24 (W/P)^2
Temperature correction → ±∝(T_f-T_s )L
Mean sea level correction → ±L(1-h/R)
Sol. Since difference of F.B and B.B of line AB differs by 180°. Hence both stations A and B are unaffected by local attraction and station C and D are affected by local attraction.
Height of collimation of instrument at station P
= RL of Benchmark + B.S. of Benchmark
= 100 + 2.6
= 102.6 m.
RL of A = Height of collimation at P – F.S. at A
= 102.6 – 2.9
= 99.7 m.
