Waste Stabilization Ponds, energy inputs ,Summary. Waste stabilization ponds WSPs are sanitation Waste Stabilization Ponds. technologies that consist of open basins that use natural. processes to treat domestic wastewater septage and 1 0 Brief Technology Description. sludge as well as animal or industrial wastes They can be. used in centralized or semi centralized sewerage systems Waste stabilization ponds WSPs are open basins. they can also be used to treat fecal sludge from onsite dry enclosed by earthen embankments and sometimes fully or. sanitation systems or as onsite water based sanitation partially lined with concrete or synthetic geofabrics They. systems serving a single building or home The most employ natural processes to treat domestic wastewater . common types of WSPs are anaerobic ponds facultative septage and sludge as well as animal or industrial wastes . ponds maturation or polishing ponds aerated ponds and They can be used in centralized or semi centralized. high rate algal ponds HRAPs Some pathogen removal is sewerage systems serving cities or towns they can also be. accomplished in anaerobic facultative aerated ponds and used as onsite systems serving a single entity e g highway. HRAPs even though their primary function is to remove rest area community center etc Figure 1 WSPs are. and stabilize organic matter The primary function of frequently used in combination with other sanitation. maturation and polishing ponds however is to remove and technologies The most common types of WSPs are. inactivate pathogens Under optimal conditions removal anaerobic ponds facultative ponds maturation ponds . efficiencies in full scale WSP systems with several units in aerated ponds and high rate algal ponds HRAPs These. series can be as high as 6 log10 for fecal bacteria and 4 log10 ponds differ in terms of their function in the overall. for viruses protozoan oo cysts and helminth eggs wastewater treatment system The main function of. however the efficiency of pathogen removal in full scale anaerobic facultative and aerated ponds is the removal of. systems is highly variable and in practice many WSP carbon containing organic matter while the main function. systems achieve only 2 to 3 log10 removal Some of the most of maturation ponds is the removal of pathogens HRAPs. important factors influencing pathogen removal efficiency were developed to optimize the efficiency of organic matter. in WSPs include hydraulic retention time and efficiency removal while simultaneously allowing for the recovery of. water clarity pond depth sunlight exposure and dissolved nutrients that become incorporated into the algal. penetration temperature and pH Shallow 1m baffled biomass These different pond types are distinguished from. maturation ponds with low turbidity high pH and plenty of each other by their depth hydraulic and organic loading. sunlight exposure will achieve the most efficient pathogen rates and by whether or not they use mechanized. reduction The sludge sediments from WSPs especially equipment for mixing or aeration In general anaerobic. anaerobic facultative and aerated ponds must be removed ponds are deepest 3 0 m and are used first in series . periodically and treated or managed appropriately to limit facultative ponds are shallower 1 5 3 0 m and may be. human exposure The concentration of viable helminth eggs used first or second in series after anaerobic ponds . and protozoan oo cysts in this sludge can be as high as maturation ponds are shallowest 1 5 m and are used. 2 000 4 000 per gram of total soilds and helminth eggs in last in series Aerated ponds may be used anywhere in a. particular can survive in WSP sediments for years WSP series of ponds and HRAPs are often used in by themselves. sysetms require large areas of open land making them or between anaerobic and maturation ponds For more. ideal in smaller towns and rural settings though they are information about the design of WSP systems refer to von. used successfully in many urban environments as well Sperling 2007 Oakley 2005 Shilton 2006 or Mara. often in combination with other sanitation technologies 2003 Figure 2 illustrates different types of ponds and one. One of the biggest advantages of WSPs is that they are easy schematic of a typical WSP system design with three. and inexpensive to operate and maintain and generally do different types of ponds anaerobic facultative and. not rely on mechanized equipment or expensive material or maturation operating in series . 3, Waste Stabilization Ponds, Figure 1 Waste stabilization ponds are a centralized or semi centralized treatment technology in the overall. sanitation service chain used with sewered sanitation systems and also to treat the contents of onsite systems. 4, Waste Stabilization Ponds, Figure 2 Schematic of a typical waste stabilization pond system top anaerobic pond in Brazil middle left photo. from Stewart Oakley facultative pond in the United States middle right photo from Matthew Verbyla maturation. pond in Bolivia bottom left photo from Matthew Verbyla high rate algal pond in Burkina Faso bottom right photo. from Ynoussa Maiga , 2 0 Inputs and Outputs for Waste Stabilization The outputs from WSP systems include the treated. effluent liquid sludge sediments solids and biogas The.

Helminth eggs are primarily removed by sedimentation . Stabilization Ponds, and other factors are less important Different pathogen. types that are removed by the same mechanism are not. Different factors affect different types of pathogens in. necessarily removed at the same rate by that mechanism . different ways The most important factor for the removal. For example viruses and bacteria are both damaged by. of viral and bacterial pathogens is sunlight exposure sunlight in WSPs but viruses are generally more resistant. although other factors such as temperature dissolved than bacteria Davies Colley et al 2005b Sinton et al . oxygen and pH are also important Sedimentation 2002 Different species of viruses and bacteria are also. hydraulic efficiency sunlight exposure and physical removed at different rates in WSPs due to differences in. chemical factors including temperature and pH are all their structural and genetic composition Silverman et al . important factors for the removal of protozoan pathogens 2013 Mattle et al 2014 Kohn et al 2016 . 5, Waste Stabilization Ponds, Figure 4 Major factors affecting pathogen removal in waste stabilization ponds and causal loop diagram showing the. influence of sunlight on pathogen die off, 3 1 Sunlight and Water Clarity suspended growth algae which contribute to the turbidity. of the water Jasper et al 2013 Silverman et al 2015 .
