Activating The Sludge In Small Municipal Facultative Waste Lagoon Systems

Source: RELIANT Water Technologies

Wastewater treatment lagoons were originally facultative in design — shallow, single and multi-cell lagoon systems that counted on wind, sunlight, anaerobic bacteria, and time for the digestion of the organic components of the wastewater. It was eventually realized that nature alone was not the answer for this degradation process. Read the full article to learn about a patented and unique subsurface aerator design that has the ability of ‘activating’ (aerated, suspended growth, biological treatment) the sludge in a lagoon or pond over a one to five acre area, per aerator.
