Animal Waste Containment in Lagoons


  • Prepared by the Animal Waste Containment Committee of the Environmental and Water Resources Institute of ASCE.

    Animal Waste Containment in Lagoons provides a comprehensive view of the state-of-the-art practice of animal waste containment and gives directions for future research techniques. Topics Include: Fate of nitrogen compounds in animal waste lagoons; Seepage and transport through anaerobic lagoon liners; Clogging of animal waste lagoon liners; Evaluating seepage losses and liner performance at animal waste lagoons using water balance methods; Use of coal combustion by-products as low permeability liners for manure storage facilities; and Air quality issues associated with livestock production.

    Practitioners in the following disciplines: water resources, environmental, geotechnical, and agricultural engineering will find this manual to be very beneficial.
