Abstract:

Various methods of disposing of concentrated, high-strength domestic sewage from sixty-five 2000-gal vaults 34 around Lake Ouachita and 31 around Lake Greeson, Arkansas are discussed. The purpose of the study was to find a temporary solution i.e. satisfactory for up to 5 years for the disposal of the Lake Ouachita and Lake Greeson wastes. Possible treatment methods discussed include Insertion into an existing sewage treatment system Package plants preceded by a sewage lagoon Sewage lagoons Absorption trenches Sewage irrigation and Burial. Use of the liquefyingoxidizing agent ZEP-O-ZYME was studied and found to be beneficial. The most feasible solution approved by the State of Arkansas was treatment by a method of land disposal either absorption trenches, irrigation, burial, or a combination thereof. Author
