Lagoon systems achieve good and stable effluent data in regard to organic pollutants, but they charge the receiving waters with relatively high ammonium loads. Therefore an existing lagoon-plant was extended by a vertical flow reed-bed for the special purpose of nitrification. This paper presents the efficiency of the combination plant as well as the possibility to monitor and control the reed-bed operation by the oxidation-reduction potential (ORP). The results show that the combination plant… CONTINUE READING
