  • Lagoon Treatment

Wastewater lagoons are an economical way of treating wastewater. Lagoons allow for the natural breakdown of biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and ammonia to leave clean, clear water behind. Depending on influent flow-rates, organic bottom solids and sludge collect at the bottom of the lagoon, decreasing the intake levels. Without regular maintenance, high BOD, total suspended solids (TSS) and malodors occur, which can result in complaints from neighbors, fines and costly emergency treatment.
