Lagoon Design and Construction
Proper lagoon design and construction will minimize the risk to surface water or groundwater.
Lagoons should not be placed:
- in low areas or wet areas where the potential exists for groundwater seepage into the lagoon
- in areas where subsoil drainage tile has been installed
Either situation could cause the lagoon to remain full of water, regardless of how much irrigation pumping is done.
