  • Taking wind into account in the design of waste stabilisation ponds

    Up to now, most investigations on the dependency of the fluid flow patterns and performance of waste stabilisation ponds (WSPs) on wind speed and direction and pond layout have been performed using 2D and 3D CFD steady state isothermal models. 3D non steady state models integrating thermal processes and boundary conditions taking into account the full influence of meteorological factors are ...

  • Performance of modified design pond sand filters

    Two pond sand filters (PSFs) with modified design were constructed in Pathorghata Upazila of Barguna District located in southern Bangladesh. Performance assessment of the PSFs was done after commissioning in terms of quality of filtered water, ease of operation and maintenance, monthly check-up of production capacity/efficiency of the filters, users' participation and acceptability of the ...

  • Oxygen, the fix for pond problems

    Aeration of a water feature should have three main considerations. These include preventing thermal stratification, balancing the dissolved oxygen levels throughout the water column from the sludge or benthic layer to the surface and balancing temperature levels throughout the water column. Although oxygen transfer from certain methods may be significant, the greatest amount of oxygenation takes ...

  • Capturing biogas energy to increase your business profits while safeguarding the environment

    Methane is a biogas produced from swine or cow manure, as well as food processing and meat packing waste. Methane is a natural gas, that when left uncollected, contributes to the harmful greenhouse gases in the earth’s atmosphere. When biogas is captured under a cover and becomes concentrated, it creates a corrosive and toxic byproduct called hydrogen sulfide. The gas generates a rotten egg ...

  • Industrial Pond Treatment

    This small municipality was experiencing difficulty in maintaining dissolved oxygen levels in their industrial ponds. During the processing season, they were receiving 3MGD of industrial wastewater from tomato and green pepper processors. During the previous season, they had been out of compliance on numerous occasions and received several complaints from the public concerning odor from the ...

  • The Advantages of a Box Welded Pond Liner

    There’s no time like the New Year for good intentions – and one which will pay dividends for many years to come is to create a garden pond. One of the first choices you’ll have to make is the type of liner to use. The material itself is a no-brainer – always use a synthetic rubber liner rather than polythene; synthetic rubbers are much tougher and longer lasting than the ...

  • Assessment of classical surface organic loading design equations based on the actual performance of primary and secondary facultative ponds

    This article presents results from a performance evaluation of 73 full-scale primary facultative ponds and 37 secondary facultative ponds in Brazil. The data were used to test the applicability of some classical design equations for recommended surface BOD loading rates. The empirical equations proposed by Mara in 1976 and 1987 and the equation developed by McGarry and Pescod in 1970 were ...

  • Considerations for test design to accommodate energy‐budget models in ecotoxicology: A case study for acetone in the pond snail Lymnaea stagnalis

    Toxicokinetic–toxicodynamic (TKTD) modeling offers many advantages in the analysis of ecotoxicity test data. Calibration of TKTD models, however, places different demands on test design compared with classical concentration–response approaches. In the present study, useful complementary information is provided regarding test design for TKTD modeling. A case study is presented for the pond ...

  • UASB-polishing ponds design parameters: contributions from a pilot scale study in southeast Brazil

    This paper presents the results of five years monitoring of an experimental wastewater treatment plant in southeast Brazil, comprised of a UASB reactor followed by a submerged aerated biofilter (BF) (field scale) and shallow polishing ponds (pilot scale). Three ponds in series achieved high quality effluent standards in terms of ammonia and E.coli, but a fourth pond did not result in further ...

  • How do you clean a stormwater management pond?

    How do you clean a stormwater management pond (SMWP) without draining the pond first? A clean-out of the SWMP is required once every 5-15 years to remove accumulated sediments to ensure the pond continues to function as intended. Drainage of the SWMP is not always required to facilitate the clean-out. By combining the pumping and excavation into one process! New pumping technology - Dragflow ...

  • Managing Ponds for BOD Reduction and Odor Control

    A large number of food processors utilize ponds to treat their wastewater. Most of the time these ponds are aerobic in which they use oxygen to degrade the wastewater biological oxygen demand (BOD). Fruit and vegetables contain a high amount of simple sugars and other organic compounds that when exposed to water are released into the water stream. These organic compounds require oxygen to degrade ...

  • Benefits of a BaySaver Separation System for Wet Pond Pretreatment

    There are instances when a BaySaver Separation System may be used as a pretreatment device for a wet pond; when environmental regulations require it; or when a stand alone physical separator is not enough to meet an 80% removal efficiency using solely this product. There are cost benefits associated with using BaySaver products in conjunction with other Best Management Practices (BMPs). In the ...
