Abstract : Various methods of disposing of concentrated, high-strength domestic sewage from sixty-five 2000-gal vaults (34 around Lake Ouachita and 31 around Lake Greeson, Arkansas) are discussed. The purpose of the study was to find a temporary solution (i.e. satisfactory for up to 5 years) for the disposal of the Lake Ouachita and Lake Greeson wastes. Possible treatment methods discussed include: Insertion into an existing sewage treatment system; Package plants preceded by a sewage lagoon; Sewage lagoons; Absorption trenches; Sewage irrigation; and Burial. Use of the liquefying/oxidizing agent ZEP-O-ZYME was studied and found to be beneficial. The most feasible solution approved by the State of Arkansas was treatment by a method of land disposal: either absorption trenches, irrigation, burial, or a combination thereof. (Author)
