Mastering desludging projects: A proactive approach

Removing accumulated sludge from a lagoon system is a fast, cost-effective way to restore treatment capacity and performance. But, a successful lagoon desludging project requires thoughtful planning and careful execution to sidestep potential pitfalls that could escalate costs and slow down production.

What’s that smell? Diagnosing springtime lagoon odours.

non-aerated lagoons, can experience benthal feedback—a process where the turbulence of the warming water stirs up the sludge blanket and releases hydrogen sulfide gas along with nutrients that have accumulated in the settled sludge.

What to do when your lagoon’s effluent TSS is higher than the influent TSS

ARTICLE What to do when your lagoon’s effluent TSS is higher than the influent TSS What’s happening in a wastewater lagoon when the TSS of the effluent is higher than the TSS of the influent? And more importantly, how does an operator fix it? Excess sludge accumulation is often the cause of high effluent TSS […]

The advantages of low-energy, high-performance Geotube dewatering for biosolids management

Geotube dewatering of wastewater sludge

Spinning, squeezing, solar drying, there are many ways to dewater sludge from treatment plants and produce stabilized biosolids that are ready for land application or disposal. Selecting the best approach often considers several factors, including the speed at which dewatering must be completed, the space that’s available at the treatment plant to accommodate the process, and capital and operating costs.
