Coordinated laboratory, field pilot-, and farm-scale lagoon studies were conducted to define relationships between loading intensity and frequency based on treatment performance, sludge accumulation, and odor potential. Surface aeration of field pilot units and farm-scale lagoons was also investigated to evaluate aeration levels required for odor control and the effect of surface aeration on nitrogen and organic transformations. Laboratory studies were designed to elucidate basic chemical, physical, and biological mechanisms important in explaining and modeling lagoon performance. Predictive and interpretive relationships for lagoons based on constant batch loading and continuous loading were derived to describe the supernatant concentration of unaerated lagoons. Lagoon liquid from a farm-scale unit was irrigated to nine 9.24 m x 9.24 m Coastal Plain soil-Bermuda grass plots at nitrogen loading rates of 300, 600, and 1,200 kg N/ha./year.
