Lagoons and digesters are efficient components to help treat manures and realize an economic revenue. However, they have to be maintained regularly through cleanout by removing sludge to ensure enough treatment volume is available. Cleanout requires planning to ensure reasonable cost, structural integrity, and efficient use of sludge nutrients. In this webinar, presenters will share their expertise in sampling and cleanout for lagoons and anaerobic digesters and considerations in planning these operations.
An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) will be submitted.
