Upgrading Cold Climate Lagoons

Water temperature affects virtually every aspect of wastewater lagoon performance. This free, hour-long webinar outlines the effects of cold temperature on lagoon kinetic treatment rates, including oxygen transfer efficiency and ammonia-nitrogen removal; and reveals how to design lagoon infrastructure to withstand cold weather conditions. Learn how a cold-climate lagoon can be upgraded to ensure BOD and ammonia compliance year-round.
