Storm water ponds require very little hands-on maintenance. In many instances, the adage “out of sight, out of mind” fits lagoon operations. That is until issues arise, such as meeting new regulations or a loss of capacity. When it comes to capacity issues, sludge accumulation is often ignored, so it is not uncommon to anticipate sludge accumulation of 200 m3 per year. Over time, accumulated sludge can reduce the hydraulic capacity of the lagoon. Treating that sludge with the MetaFLO solidification process, and removing it to a landfill, will increase the lifespan of the lagoon in a cost-effective and environmental friendly manner.
