Process and Aeration Upgrades for Wastewater Lagoons
Triplepoint Wastewater lagoons are used in many small towns and industries as the main treatment process. Lagoons are also used in larger wastewater treatment plants for equalization, additional treatment, effluent polishing, storm flow bypass, etc.
Triplepoint Wastewater Lagoons have provided reliable and cost-effective wastewater treatment for many years. They are easy to operate and require minimal maintenance. However, with more stringent effluent requirements, many lagoons need to be upgraded to achieve better BOD and TSS removal, plus nitrification/denitrification in many cases.
There are many other aerobic biological processes for the treatment of wastewaters, including activated sludge, biological nutrient removal (BNR), enhanced nutrient removal (ENR), trickling filters, rotating biological contactors (RBC), membrane bioreactors (MBR), and biofilters. They all have in common the use of oxygen (or air) and microbial action to reduce the pollutants in wastewaters.
Aerated lagoons use aerators for mixing and to add oxygen to the wastewater. They are referred to as either partial-mix or complete-mix lagoons depending on the amount of aeration. Energy costs for lagoons are typically much less than those for other types of wastewater treatment systems. Aerated lagoons require less land area and shorter detention times than anaerobic lagoons or facultative lagoons.
TriplepointTM specializes in assisting engineering firms and municipalities to increase capacity, meet stricter effluent requirements, or upgrade outdated equipment for existing lagoons/
