Analysis of data from existing facultative lagoon systems indicates that none of the approaches commonly used for design is adequate. Federal discharge standards often are violated when a design satisfies state loading and detention time criteria. Several empirical design equations and two kinetic models yielded predictions not substantiated by the data. Hydraulic detention time is used in many of the design methods, yet accurate projections of actual hydraulic residence time are not available. Research in this area may be the key to successful modifications of current design methods.
