The study relates the physical and chemical characteristics of the contents of an anaerobic stabilization lagoon to the bacteria that are responsible for the stabilization of the waste. The lagoon is fed by effluent from a settling tank that receives wastes from a hog barn. The lagoon operated as an unheated digester and maintained a pH between 7.2 and 8.1. The Redox potential varied from -370 to-403 millivolts. The mean concentration of volatile acids was 403 mg/l. The average level of BOD for the lagoon water was 566 mg/l. A BOD loading of 3,250 pounds per acre per day did not produce lagoon failure. Sulfate reducers were grown on Postgate's Media E. Methane producing organisms were detected. Photosynthetic organisms were grown on two different media. (Author)
