Lagoon for watering

jobad72November 3, 2013

I live in a area where we have holding tanks for the solid waste and a lagoon for just the sewage liquids. My question is would it be alright to use the water in the lagoon in a drip irrigation type scenario for my garden. Reason I ask is that the grass all around the lagoon is always very green and lush and needs mowed way more often than the rest of my acreage.
Thanks for advice.

jobad72, you can use the water in your drip system but you will need a very efficient filter at the source or else you will have endless problems with blocked tubing and fittings.
I would be extremely concerned about harmful bacteria (E. coli).
