Treatment Lagoons Upgradeable to Digesters*
NRCS Conservation Practice Standard No. 359
Natural Resources Conservation Service provides details on the current
standard for "Waste Treatment Lagoon" to biologically treat
waste, such as manure and wastewater, and thereby reduce pollution
potential. Many factors should be considered when trying to
comply with this Standard and Federal, State and local laws including:
Location: Ideally placed to minimize the potential
& Foundation: The lagoon
shall be located in soils with an acceptable permeability that meets
all applicable regulations, or the lagoon shall be lined.
Volume Capacity: The lagoon
shall have the capability of storing: accumulated sludge, minimum
treatment volume for anaerobic lagoons, approximately 60 days
volume of manure and wastewater accounting for precipitation,
evaporation and 25-year 24-hour storms.
Period: The detention
time between drawdown events shall be at least 60 days or longer.
Loading: The daily waste
loading shall be based on the maximum daily loading considering all
waste sources that will be treated by the lagoon. Local
information or laboratory test data should be used if available.
Rate: Anaerobic lagoons
shall be designed to have a minimum treatment volume based on Volatile
Solids(VS) per unit of volume.
