This is typically the way a new containment water lagoon is built using a NOAH Water Technologies Manure Lagoon System before it is put in use. It is also the way to convert a standard manure lagoon after it has been fully remediated and treated with the HIOS aerobic system.
The HIOS system divides the lagoon into five or more sections (cells), and converts the lagoon into a continuous flow, irrigation ready system. (A hog farm has the requirement for more cells as hogs produce more manure and organic bio-solids.) The first cell on the left of this diagram shows the influent site where the manure and organic bio-solids, or contaminated water enters the system.
In this first cell are two HIOS rafts powered by the blowers, which keep the super oxygenated water continuously circulating. Also in this section, is the first of two electrical frequency unit transducers, which allow for the large release of dissolved oxygen into the water. It is this dissolved oxygen which helps feed the aerobic bacteria that digest the organic bio-solids; 21 times faster than anaerobic greenhouse gas producing bacteria.
The best quality water from the first cell passes by way of a special divider into the second cell where the aerobic bacteria continue to digest the organic bio-solids. The best water continues through another special divider into the third cell and at this point there is very little trace of organic bio-solids in the water.
The water continues through dividers past a second electrical frequency unit releasing more dissolved oxygen into the water. In the last cell part of the super oxygenated nutrient rich water is fed back through a return pipe to the first cell at the influent site where it helps the aerobic bacterial colonies in the first cell grow and thrive.
The super oxygenated water from the last cell is now completely clear of all organic bio-solids; it is odourless, rich in beneficial bacteria, and the end product can be compared to worm castings as it's very high in plant-available soluble nutrients. The water may now be applied through regular irrigation equipment to the fields at any time of year.
