A lagoon designed to operate in separate, sequential, bacterial and algal cultures achieved significant process stability, thorough stepwise waste metabolism, and efficient diffusion of gaseous end products. Because the two phases were constructed as two superimposed layers, higher and more uniform process temperatures were achieved. Treatment efficiency was uniform throughout all seasons of the year, and the average reduction in biochemical oxygen demand was 77 percent.
