Chicken Processing Plant Lagoon Cleanup

Light Industrial | DATE POSTED: April 26, 2016

Mexico’s largest chicken farm was pumping high BOD discharge straight into the river system because their 2 sludge lagoons were full. The levels of BOD discharge were exceeding permit requirements, and plans of an expansion meant dewatering of the lagoons. Geotube® technology was able to capture and hold 62800 cubic metres of material allowing fully operational lagoons again.
