The question as to whether lagoons, as they now exist, meet the new secondary treatment standards and what methods would work to upgrade lagoon treatment in cases where they presently do not meet the standards is of high priority for many Regional Offices of EPA. The symposium was held for EPA staff and State Officials to review the Office of Research and Development's program for upgrading lagoons. The intermittent sand filter, land application of algae laden effluents and the submerged rock filter offer good potential for cost effective upgrading. The basic biology of the treatment mechanism, disinfection technology, the controlled discharge operation (and results), cost effective analysis, and new fields of research were covered by speakers. Intermittent sand filtration, submerged rock filtration, and land application of sewage effluents are effective alternatives to removing algae from sewage lagoons.
