a coastal body of water separated from the ocean by a sand bar which may periodically breach, opening the lagoon to the ocean for a time. Lagoons can form where a river meets the ocean (an estuarine lagoon), or without the influence of a river.
A shallow body of water, as a pond or lake, which usually has a shallow, restricted inlet from the sea. A pond containing raw or partially treated wastewater in which aerobic or anaerobic stabilization occurs.
a body of water cut off from a larger body by a reef of sand or coral
a big pond that isn't very deep
a body of comparatively shallow salt water separated from the deeper sea by a shallow or exposed sandbank , coral reef , or similar feature
a shallow area of sea water that is nearly or completely separated from the sea by a land barrier such as a coral reef
a shallow lake, it generally constitutes the back water of some river, and is speedily dried up
a shallow stretch of salt water partly or wholly separated from the sea by a narrow strip of land or a low sand-bank or coral reef

a shallow body of water, seperated from the sea by sandbars and coral reefs
A shallow waterbody that is near or connected to a larger body of water.
A shallow artificial pond often used for the processing of sewage or manure.
Area of marine water between the shore of the mainland and the fringing coral reef.
Structure usually constructed in the ground to contain liquid and solid animal wastes for storage or treatment purposes. Usually have earthen walls or banks surrounding it to prevent spillage of wastes out of the lagoon. May also be lined to prevent seepage of wastes through the bottom and into underlying groundwater and/or may be covered to contain offensive odors, which arise from the wastes contained in them.
With respect to wastewater treatment, a pond in which algae, sunlight, and oxygen interact to restore wastewater to a quality often equal to that of the effluent from the secondary treatment stage. Lagoons are widely used by small communities to provide wastewater treatment.
An enclosed area of water separated from the open sea or from a stream by some more or less effective, but not complete, obstacle such as low sandbanks.
A shallow body of brackish water separated from the sea by a sandbar.
A lagoon is a shallow body of water that is located alongside a coast and separated from the ocean by a strip of land or a sandbank.
A shallow, artificial treatment pond where sunlight, bacterial action, and oxygen work to purify wastewater; a stabilization pond. An aerated lagoon is a treatment pond that uses oxygen to speed up the natural process of biological decomposition of organic wastes. A lagoon is regulated as a point source under the Clean Water Act if there is a direct surface water discharge. Some lagoons that discharge into ground water also are regulated if they have a direct hydrogeologic connection to surface water. In other areas, lagoons were historically used to dump various liquid, solid, and hazardous wastes from manufacturing or industrial processes. These wastes typically flooded and polluted surrounding environs or seeped underground. Such lagoons are now regulated under RCRA but some must be cleaned up under Superfund.
A shallow impoundment made by excavation or earthfill for the purpose of waste treatment.
A shallow, pond-like body of water that is usually connected to a larger body of water, such as a river, lake or sea; the body of water beween a barrier reef and a beach shoreline, or surrounded by an atoll.
a shallow coastal water body, divided from the sea by a barrier of sand
as used here, a pond employed for treating wastewater.
a shallow pond where sunlight, bacterial action, and oxygen work to purify wastewater. Lagoons are typically used for the storage of wastewaters, sludges, liquid wastes, or spent nuclear fuel.
A shallow area of water separated from the ocean by a sandbank or by a strip of low land. A lagoon does not have waves like an ocean.
(i) a shallow pond where sunlight, bacterial action and oxygen work to purify wastewater. (ii) A shallow body of water, often separated from the sea by coral reefs or sandbars.
A shallow, marine waterbody separated from the sea by sand bars or a barrier island.
Water impoundment in which organic wastes are stored or stabilized, or both.
A shallow stretch of seawater (or lakewater) near or communicating with the sea (or lake) and partly or completely separated from it by a low, narrow, elongate strip of land.
A body of shallow seawater separated from the open ocean by a barrier island.
A shallow pond generally separated from the open sea ( cf. atoll, coral reef).
A huge, manmade hole in the ground created to hold a mixture of water and animal waste until it can be applied to land. These can be as big as several square acres (1 acre = 43,560 square feet) and hold 20-25 million gallons of liquid waste. This is equivalent to more than 98 Olympic-sized swimming pools. Lagoons are generally not covered and frequently leak into the surrounding soil or groundwater, so they are associated with air, water and soil pollution.
As used in this context, a vessel, usually open air and in the ground, that provides storage and limited treatment of hog waste and associated water that has been flushed out of the hog houses.
(225X) - A shallow water body separated from the open sea by sand islands (e.g., barrier islands) or coral reefs.
a shallow, saltwater area by the sea but separated from it by sandbars or by coral reefs or islands.
body of protected water inside a reef; often surrounded by unbroken ramparts of coral

Earthen storage structure with sufficient dilution water added to allow microorganisms to biodegrade and treat organic matter.
In wastewater treatment or livestock facilities, a shallow pond used to store wastewater where sunlight and biological activity decompose the waste.
