Lagoons have been found to be an effective and relatively inexpensive means of treating domestic sewage. Economic considerations and space requirements tend to make this method of treatment most attractive to small urban areas. Sufficient data and information are now available to provide a conservative empirical basis for design. Additional research is needed to establish a rigorous means of calculating the most economical lagoon requirements and of predicting performance.
