Paper Title:
Determination of the Efficiency of Aerated Lagoon in Biological Treatment of Human Waste (Faeces)
  Abstract

Pilot scale “Waste Stabilization pond” was evaluated for treating high quality waste water using aerobic process. The method involved the measure of the molecular oxygen utilized during a specified incubation period for the biochemical degradation of organic matter and oxygen used to oxidize inorganic material. Operation of the pond involved engineering construction to reduce the risk of soil and groundwater contamination. Calibration of the model using laboratory tests showed BOD for 5, 10 and 15 days as 101.9mg/l. 273.3mg/l and 426mg/l respectively. Pond efficiency was 76.19%. The design experience and post design results provided knowledge about the efficiency of a waste stabilization pond and the basis of recommendation and practice in developed cities.
