A California winery was having odor problems from its wastewater evaporation lagoons. The wash and wastewater from this facility contain large amounts of organic matter. The wastewater is collected and pumped to two main lagoons for evaporation, percolation, and sprinkler irrigation. The high organic loading results in high BOD levels, and over time, the lack of oxygen in the wastewater allows anaerobic bacteria to proliferate (turn septic) and cause odor problems.
