O'Connor and Eckenfelder discussed the use of aerated lagoons for treating organic wastes .
They indicated that a 4 - day retention , aerated lagoon would give 60 to 76 per_cent BOD reduction .
It appeared from the limited information available that the aerated lagoon might offer a satisfactory means of increasing the capacity of existing oxidation ponds as_well as providing the same degree of treatment in a smaller volume .
It was proposed that aerated lagoons be used to eliminate the problem at the existing oxidation ponds and to provide the necessary treatment for the additional development .
The lack of adequate data on the aerated lagoon system prompted the developer to construct an aerated lagoon pilot plant to determine its feasibility for treating domestic sewage .
