Solid Waste Facilities - Leachate Lagoons

The pilot was developed to evaluate the effects of large volumes of dissolved oxygen in SLSWA's leachate lagoon. The lagoons effluent is sent to the Fort Pierce Utilities Authority in 35,000 Gal 'slugs' where it is tested, and a surcharge applied for BOD/COD readings above 1000Mg/L.

Several elements collectively defined the pilot test, including the following:

  • Test the performance of Taeraton system's ability to transfer dissolved oxygen in SLSWA's leachate lagoon.
  • Test the performance of Taeraton system's ability to reduce BOD levels and effectively produce effluent that meets Fort Pierce County's standards.
  • Test the performance of Taeraton system's ability to reduce COD levels and effectively produce effluent that meets Fort Pierce County's standards.
