The water baffle is an economical system designed to add settling time by lengthening the flow path of water in lagoons and other wastewater treatment locations. Water baffles are installed in a way that slows and controls the flow of water. The intent is to increase the time that water pollutants have to settle. The more settling time, the cleaner the water is at the end of the process. As shown in the water baffle specifications, this system is designed to improve the BOD (biological oxygen demand), lower the TSS (total suspended solids) levels in your location, and improve the overall quality of water in your location.
BOD: Biological (also sometimes called biochemical) Oxygen Demand. This indicates the amount of oxygen available in the water, as well as the amount of organic pollutants.
TSS: Total Suspended Solids. This indicates the amount of non-dissolved sediment that is suspended in water and typically represents pollutants that either would settle if undisturbed or could be filtered out.
