NAKUSP, BC - Fall 2013

Reduction of algae and odours leads to increased capacity of lagoon.

Treatment of municipal wastewater in lagoon-based wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) is prevalent in Canada and very cost-effective for smaller communities where land is available and inexpensive. In fact, lagoons are, by far, the most popular wastewater treatment technology, and represent over 65 per cent of all existing WWTPs in Canada (2007). Approximately 800 municipal wastewater treatment facilities are using lagoons in Canada, with 150 of them in Ontario.
