TREVINO CANSINO, Alejandro  and  CORTES MARTINEZ, Facundo. Reduced design method for stabilization lagoons. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2016, vol.7, n.4, pp.729-742. ISSN 2007-0934.

In Mexico stabilization lagoons represent 40% of treatment plants, most of which operate with lower or equal flow at 5 L/s. Because they are small plants, they are vulnerable to be deficient in design and operation. The article presents a reduced price for the design and review of stabilization lagoons, based in 11 equations method. The criterion considered for obtaining was expressions include variables as constant depth and evaporation also four factors were determined as a function of temperature. Reduced results are similar to the traditional method. It is recommended to continue the development of the method reduced considering the use of baffles or channels.

Keywords : reduced method; retention time; wastewater stabilization lagoons.
