  Animal waste could have an impact on water quality based upon the elevation of some nutrients that are associated with the waste. It must be noted that some nutrients associated with animal waste did not have a negative impact on water by: Animal Waste Lagoon Water Quality Study J.M. Ham, L.M. Reddi, and C.W. Rice Kansas State University Report Period: May, to June, Anaerobic lagoons are used to collect, treat, and store waste at many concentrated animal operations (CAOs) in Kansas. Lagoons contain nutrients, salts, and other soluble chemicals that, in many. Goals / Objectives Determine the extent to which animal waste lagoons pose a threat to the groundwater of North Carolina. Project Methods Lagoons representative of soil type and hydrologic conditions in NC will be selected and related groundwater monitored for various pollutants. Proper management of animal waste protects the quality of Indiana's water supplies. Waste by-products from livestock production that must be stored and utilized, include: animal excrement (manure and urine), waste water, spilled feed and sometimes bedding.

The general permits set operating conditions for different categories of farms to protect surface water and groundwater from contamination by animal waste. The recently finalized general permits included some new or modified conditions, including a requirement for swine farms to monitor groundwater quality around waste lagoons located in the. Sewage and wastewater disposal severely impact aquatic ecosystems, including disruption of food chains, alteration of reproductive cycles and habitat disruption. Sewage comes from domestic, agricultural, industrial and urban sources. Hazards include biologic, chemical, nutrients and litter. Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations and Their Impact on Communities This contact can either be through a pipe that carries manure or wastewater to surface water, or by animal contact with surface water that runs through their confined area. treatment lagoons, or holding ponds.

Design mechanically oxygenated waste treatment lagoons on the basis of daily BOD5 loading and oxygenation equipment manufacturer’s performance data for oxygen transfer and mixing. Select oxygenation equipment to provide a minimum of 1 pound of oxygen for each pound of daily BOD5.
