4. Animal units, AU = WLLxLLNL l000

Manure volume

B. Total manure production for storage period, ft3 (TVM)


Wastewater volume

9. Daily wastewater volume per AU, ft3/AU/day (DWW) =

ll. Total wastewater volume for storage period, ft3 (TWW)


10. Total wastewater volume for animal description for storage period, ft3yr f*nn WWD = DWW x AU x D = /D,600

Clean water volume

12. Clean water added during storage period, ft3 (CW)

Solids accumulation

14. Volume of solids accumulation, ft3 (VSA) _

Runoff Volume

13. Runoff volume, ft3 (ROV) (attach documentation) Includes the volume of runoff from the drainage area due to normal runoff for the storage period and the runoff volume from the 25-year, 24-hour storm.

Waste volume requirement

Waste storage pond sizing—The waste storage pond is sized by trial and error for either a rectangular or circular shaped pond by using the procedure on line 16. Figure 10-20 is a simple BASIC computer program that can be used to compute the volume by inputting the bottom width, bottom length, and depth.

Depth adjustment—The depth required to store the waste storage volume with the selected pond dimensions must be adjusted by adding depth for the precipitation less evaporation and the depth of the 25-year, 24-hour storm on the pond surface. The minimum freeboard is 1 foot. The adjustment for final depth is made using line 17.
