Factors Considered When Designing Pipes
Pipes Pipes should be located where they will not cause problems such as erosion of the lagoon sidewall.
Pipes Frequent inspections of the piping system cannot be overemphasized.
Lagoon Maintenance The vegetative cover on the dam should be well maintained. Fertilize each year if needed as recommended by a soil test to maintain a vigorous stand of grass.
Lagoon Maintenance Brush and trees on the embankment must be controlled. This may be done by mowing, chopping, or a combination of these practices.
Weekly Lagoon Maintenance Inspections
Weekly Lagoon Maintenance Inspections Check for sufficient liquid storage. You should have at least enough volume to handle a 25-year, 24-hour storm and still maintain 1 foot of freeboard.
