The Muskegon County Wastewater Management System is a lagoon impoundment, spray irrigation facility which treats about 102,000 cubic meters of wastewater per day and irrigates 2,160 hectares of corn land. Irrigated treated water channels back to the surface water via subsurface drains, percolation through the soil, wells and open ditches. A significant amount of the wastewater was diverted to the treatment site in 1974 from out-dated inefficient treatment plants which had previously discharged poorly treated wastewater directly to the County's surface waters. Data was collected from 1972 to 1975 to determine the impact of the diversion of wastewater and subsequent treatment as the site on improved quality of surface waters.
