Laboratory studies of the aerobic treatment of feedlot runoff were conducted to determine the effect of such handling upon waste characteristics and the design parameters required for such treatment. Liquid retention times (organic loading rate) and biological solids concentrations were varied. Studies of the application of the BOD test to this waste were also conducted. Liquid retention times in the laboratory system varied from one to eight days. A conclusion was that an aerobic system can effectively treat this waste with COD reductions of 60 percent or more.
