Abstract: Treatment ponds are a cost-effective alternative for municipal wastewater treatment. When compared to other secondary treatment alternatives, ponds are generally the least costly, require less energy and less skilled operational attention. They can be designed to consistently meet BOD removal requirements and can achieve significant reductions in nutrients, bacteria, and viruses.
