Toxicity Treatment in a Municipal Wastewater Lagoon System

Wastewater lagoon systems often experience biological upsets when toxic loads are introduced. Specifically, the chemicals used in illicit drug manufacturing can cause significant harm to the microbial communities in surface waters.

Municipal lagoon systems are especially vulnerable to these chemicals, because they receive high strength influent directly from urban sources. The remainder of this document discusses the use of ProBiotic Scrubber® II (PBII) to augment a lagoon system struggling with biomass die off from various causes.
