A survey on the watertightness of waste stabilization ponds in France and specific field investigations on clogging have led to some recommendations for the designer. On average, 25 % of the French lagoons have leakage problems. The main reasons for this situation are an insuffi cient preliminary geotechnical study and insufficient initial influent flow. In some cases, clogging may occur and reduce the leaks after a few months.
