Sludge Surveys

Epsom Environmental Services has the expertise and equipment to accurately and safely measure sludge levels in treatment lagoons. A sludge survey is commonly acquired to determine:

  • percentage of sludge in a lagoon or pond
  • tonnes of dry solids in a lagoon or pond
  • efficiency of the lagoon treatment process
  • post desludging or bug survey
  • investigation of aspects caused by sludge accumulation, such as odours

We understand the need for accuracy, which is why we use the most up-to-date and accurate method for surveying. Information obtained during a sludge survey is provided in a detailed report, which includes:

  • sludge volume
  • lagoon volume
  • tonnes of dry solids
  • results from laboratory analysis of sludge
  • recommendations
  • CAD produced drawings displaying sludge level and distribution
