And so the process of transferring carbon and energy through food chain continues from one organism to another (Fig. 1). Dead organisms also serve as a carbon and energy source. Group 1—Niches or Roles Performed Heterotrophic bacteria enter a facultative lagoon through domestic waste (fecal material), inflow and infiltration (I/I) as soil and water organisms, and fecal waste from wildlife including ducks and geese. 3 Absorption, adsorption, and hydrolysis. Bacteria can only degrade soluble BOD.

Each zone of a lagoon or each lagoon in a series has specific and important roles in the stabilization of wastewater. Often the effluent of a facultative lagoon is suitable for agricultural use.

Published 2015 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 35 36 The Facultative Lagoon The facultative lagoon consists of a shallow basin in which influent solids settle to the bottom along with bacteria and methanogens that are either flocculated or adsorbed to solids that settle to form an anaerobic zone or “sludge” blanket where facultative anaerobic bacteria and anaerobic bacteria along with methanogens degrade wastes (carbonaceous biochemical oxygen demand, cBOD) to carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4).

The composition of nitrogen and phosphorus in algal cells on a dry‐weight basis is 12–15% and 4–6%, respectively. 8 mg/l phosphorus. 4 The Facultative Lagoon The term “facultative” describes an aerobic–anaerobic environment or operational condition. The facultative lagoon has been used in the United States for nearly 100 years to treat agricultural, domestic, industrial, and municipal wastewaters under a large number of weather conditions. The facultative lagoon is a simple wastewater treatment process that provides low‐cost operation and environmental protection.
