Oxidation Ponds - Definition, Glossary, Details - Oilgae
Oxidation ponds : A pond that contains partially treated wastewater which is then left to allow the growth of algae and bacteria which decompose therest of the waste.
Oxidation Pond: A man-made (anthropogenic) body of water in which waste is consumed by bacteria, used most frequently with other waste-treatment processes; a sewage lagoon.
Methods of Liquid Waste Treatment: Oxidation Ponds are also known as stabilization ponds or lagoons. Within an oxidation pond heterotrophic bacteria degrade organic matter in the sewage which results in production of cellular material and minerals. The production of these supports the growth of algae in the oxidation pond.
Oxidation Pond (OP): Oxidation Ponds (or Stabilization Ponds) are a popular sewage treatment method for small communities because of their low construction and operating costs. New oxidation ponds can treat sewage to Standard B effluent level but require maintenance and periodic desludging in order to maintain this standard.
