The Town of Antigonish, Nova Scotia, operates a 1.8 MGD lagoon system consisting of one lagoon with six separate aeration zones. The lagoon is followed by a continuous upflow sand filter located in the filter building where effluent is filtered, disinfected, and then discharged. The original system of floating aeration chains with hanging diffusers was installed in 1995; after years of constant maintenance and myriad problems, the Antigonish operations department decided to look for an alternative.
In his popular workshops, Steve Harris shares all the techniques and strategies he’s learned over decades as one of America’s foremost lagoon consultants. In this webinar series, he’ll teach you—right at your desktop— how to get more years of dependable service from your lagoon: more BOD reduction, better TSS removal, odor control, sludge reduction, and nutrient removal.
Lagoon bloodworms are the larvae of midge flies and are common during warm summer temperatures. Midge flies swarm and can drive local residents indoors. Lagoon bloodworms provide insight into lagoon conditions and their effect on effluent quality. Read on to learn why they appear, what they indicate about lagoon conditions, and how to control them.
