Lagoon Pumping

Pumping is the least expensive and preferred method of removing solids from an active lagoon with access to fresh water.  LP & D uses the latest in agitation techniques to stir up and suspend the solids prior to and during the pumping process.  As a general rule LP & D needs one foot or more of water for every foot of solids in the lagoon.  If the effluent is too thick then additional water needs to be added to make the slurry pumpable.

Lagoon Pumping uses agitation boats which provide vertical agitation throughout the lagoon.  It can easily stir up and maintain the solids in suspension.  In addition Lagoon Pumping uses traditional stick agitators to wash down the banks and to maintain a horizontal movement to the lagoon to assure suspension of the solids throughout the pumping process.

The manure slurry is withdrawn from the bottom of the lagoon to assure that the heaviest solids are removed throughout the pumping process.  This manure slurry is force fed into a centrifical lead pump on the side of the lagoon and pressurized to 150 to 180 psi. The thickness or percent of solids in the manure slurry creates friction loss in the hose so every 3/4 to one mile a booster pump needs to be used to maintain the pressure and fluid volume moving through the hose.

The effluent is run through 8" supply lines along roads, through culverts and across fields to get to the agriculture field in which it will be incorporated or injected into the soil.  The effluent is directly injected 4" to 8 " into the ground right where the roots of the crops will get the most nutrient value. If Sodium or manure salts are an issue, then the slurry can be deep injected up to 8" to 12" below the surface of the soil.

The drag line method of delivery carries between 1600 to 2000 gallons per minute at 150 to 180 psi.  LP & D can pump up to 24 hours a day and can deliver between 1.2 million to 2.4 million gallons per day.  This number of gallons pumped per day can drop if the flow is impeded due to friction loss due to long distance to field, % of solids in slurry, mechanical break downs, preventative maintenance, rain or inclimate weather or other factors outside of LP & D control.
