Nebraska's natural resources provide its residents with an abundance of wildlife, recreation, and agricultural opportunities.

Ec96-779 Lagoons For Management Of Livestock Manure, Gerald R. Bodman Jan 1996

Ec96-779 Lagoons For Management Of Livestock Manure, Gerald R. Bodman

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

A lagoon is a specifically designed manure storage facility. A properly designed lagoon also functions as a treatment system. Manure in any storage facility undergoes some biological decomposition. However, any decomposition of organic matter which occurs in a conventional storage is coincidental and not part of the design procedure or considerations.

The proper design of a lagoon gives special consideration to biological decomposition of organic matter. In fact, the design is intended to promote or enhance the breakdown of organic matter.

This publication discusses the types of lagoons. It covers the design, construction, and guidelines of maintaining a lagoon.
