Application Note: Dairy Farms Use YSI Instruments To Map Volume Of Wastewater Lagoons

Source: YSI, a Xylem brand

On July 1, 2010, dairy farm waste management plans are due to the California Regional Water Quality Control Board.

The Board's Order—No. R5-2007-0035 Waste Discharge Requirements General Order for Existing Milk Cow Dairies—requires determination of adequate containment capacity for process wastewater. This determination of storage volume requires either surveying of cross-sections in wastewater lagoons or assumptions from design/build documents.
