A full-scale treatment of wastewater from a cheese processing operation was conducted over a one year period. A two-stage aerated lagoon system provided an average BOD removal of 97% at BOD loadings ranging from 0.117 to 4.34 lb/1000cu ft/day. Hydraulic detention time varied from 50 to 82 days per lagoon. Temperature had the single greatest influence on process efficiency. Costs for lagoon operation, maintenance and amortization were estimated to be $2.15 per 1000 gallons or $0.14 per pound BOD applied.
