Recycling lagoon water for manure flushing systems
Flushing systems for manure collection and transport from animal confinement buildings have the advantages of improved building environment and reduced labor. Flush water comes from either the domestic water supply or as recycled water from the lagoon receiving the wastes. The advantages of using recycled water are a decreased demand on the domestic water supply and less hydraulic or "fresh water" loading on the lagoon.
