  • 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 ...

  • Is Water RunOff Effecting my Pond?

    What is Water RunOff? Runoff is precipitation that did not get (infiltrated) absorbed into the soil, or did not evaporate, and therefore made its way from the ground surface into places that water collect. Runoff causes erosion, and also carry chemicals and substances on the ground surface along to the ponds, lakes and rivers where the water ends up. ( ...

  • Control Algae and Improve the Water Quality in Waste Stabilization Ponds

    Due to population growth, accelerated urbanisation and economic development, the quantity of waste water generated is increasing globally. Mainly in low-income areas, a large proportion of the waste water is discharged directly in the environment. When the waste water is treated, the treatment plants may not remove certain pollutants that can have a negative impact on the people and ecosystem. ...

  • A review of the factors affecting sunlight inactivation of micro-organisms in waste stabilisation ponds: preliminary results for enterococci

    Waste stabilisation ponds (WSP) are efficient, cost-effective methods of treating wastewater in rural and remote communities in Australia. It is recognised that sunlight plays a significant role in their disinfection, however, due to the poor penetration of light in turbid waters it has been hypothesised that other mechanisms may also contribute to disinfection in WSPs. To date, studies have ...

  • The effect of aeration and effluent recycling on domestic wastewater treatment in a pilot-plant system of duckweed ponds

    Three pilot-scale duckweed pond (DP) wastewater treatment systems were designed and operated to examine the effect of aeration and effluent recycling on treatment efficiency. Each system consisted of two DPs in series fed by pre-settled domestic sewage. The first system (duckweed+ conventional treatment) was ‘natural’ and included only duckweed plants. The second system ...

  • Removal kinetic of Escherichia coli and enterococci in a laboratory pilot scale wastewater maturation pond

    During the last 15 years several authors studied the disinfection in waste stabilisation pond (WSP) and several empirical models were developed. There are huge differences between the models describing this process and there is really a need to improve the design of ponds for better disinfection. This paper addresses the Escherichia coli and enterococci disinfection in a laboratory pilot ...

  • Stormwater nitrogen removal performance of a floating treatment wetland

    The nitrogen (N) removal efficiency and effluent quality of two parallel stormwater retention ponds, one retrofitted with a floating treatment wetland (FTW) and one without any vegetation, was compared in a field trial. This study shows that inclusion of FTWs in stormwater retention ponds has potential to moderately improve N removal. Median FTW outlet event mean concentrations (EMCs) were lower ...

  • Solar septic tank aeration

    Bacteria are what enable wastewater to be treated and safely disposed off. This applies to home septic systems as well as municipal sewage treatment plants. The treatment difference between the two systems is the amounts of bacteria involved. A home septic system uses the same three types of bacteria aerobic, facultative, and obligate anaerobic. Aerobic bacteria require oxygen induced ...


  • Poultry slaughterhouse wastewater treatment plant for high quality effluent

    This paper assesses a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) regarding the technology used, as well as organic matter and nutrient removal efficiencies aiming to optimize the treatment processes involved and wastewater reclamation. The WWTP consists of a dissolved air flotation (DAF) system, an upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) reactor, an aerated-facultative pond (AFP) and a chemical-DAF ...

  • Use of biocatalysts to reduce hydrogen sulfide emissions from lagoons and landfills

    Emission of odors from ponds and lagoons occurs due to aerobic and anaerobic decomposition of organic solids to release hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, and other organic by-products.  Aerobic biodegradation occurs near the water-air interface, where diffusion of oxygen occurs, while anaerobic degradation prevails mainly near the bottom of the pond or lagoon, where there is low or no dissolved oxygen ...

  • Contaminant removal in septage treatment with vertical flow constructed wetlands operated under batch flow conditions

    Individual septic tanks are the most common means of on-site sanitation in Malaysia, but they result in a significant volume of septage. A two-staged vertical flow constructed wetlands (VFCWs) system for the treatment of septage was constructed and studied in Sarawak, Malaysia. Raw septage was treated in the first stage wetlands, and the resulting percolate was fed onto the second stage ...

  • Wastewater lagoons – a new aeration concept

    The use of wastewater treatment lagoons, or stabilization ponds, is a common practice for rural municipalities and industrial facilities. Through the years there have been numerous designs for these ‘sludge settling basins,’ ranging from facultative, partial aerated, and fully aerated systems. But the primary reason for these systems is to utilize relatively shallow earthen ponds, or ...
