Abstract

High rate algal pond systems (HRAP) are suitable for the treatment of settled domestic sewage. They combine the advantages of simplicity, low cost and ability to remove BOD-through oxygen produced by algal photosynthesis-and also phosphorus, the rate limiting nutrient in eutrophication of most surface fresh waters (Fallowfield and Garrett, 1985a). Using new research results on the biology and chemistry of the system a special flow pattern was introduced to improve the efficiency of the HRAP waste treatment method.
