Figure 1a. JPS Erosion Barrier Only.1a. Random Flow Pattern Water will go directly from the inlet to outlet of a lagoon. This results in decreased retention time and reduced BOD removal. The dead zones are not treating waste and the cost to operate these aerators is lost.
Figure 1b. JPS Erosion Barrier in Combination with JPS Baffle Curtains.1b. Intentional Flow Pattern The application of two baffles creates a serpentine flow pattern resulting in increased retention time. The baffles also force the water column through the aerators’ sphere of influence. The entire lagoon is now utilized and aerators maximum potential is realized.
