This report from the Department of Environmental Health Sciences of Tulane University presents the data collected over a one-year monitoring period at the Orange Grove Lagoon System located in Gulfport, Mississippi. Results indicate that during the study period the treatment system did not exceed the federal biochemical oxygen demand average monthly requirement of 30 mg/l nor the seven consecutive day limit of 45 mg/l. The stringent permit level of 15 mg/l set by the Mississippi Air and Water Pollution Control Commission, however, was exceeded in all cases. A yearly average of 30.7 mg/l of Total Suspended Solids was recorded. The system never exceeded federal or state pH criteria. Fecal coliform standards of 200 colonies/100 ml were met only during the months of January and February. Non-compliance was due to low residual chlorine levels resulting from poor design and operational control. Other parameters were monitored, summarized, and discussed.
