# Environmental Engineering:A lake with a constant volume of 10*106 m3 is fed by a pollution-free stream with a flow rate of 50m3/s. A factory dumps 5m3/s of a nonconservative waste with a concentration of 100mg/L into the lake. The pollutant has a reaction coefficient rate, k, of 0.25/day. Assuming the pollutant is well mixed in the lake, find the steady state concentration of the pollutant in the lake.
