How much does it cost?

The cost of disposal is dependent on three factors:

- Volume Discharged

- Concentration of Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD)

- Concentration of Total Suspended Solids (TSS)

Brine Line disposal costs on the order of $0.035 to $0.05/gallon for low concentration BOD/TSS brine waste, compared to $0.25/gallon for brine waste disposal in the Los Angeles Basin at a hazardous material handling facility.
