Thanks for your support. Curiously, I couldn't find anything about effluent settling ponds
on the website you referred to, which deals with historic US lighthouses.

Explanation:
Hi Phil,

I agree with your translation. You could leave the term effluent out as the context indicates clearly that the settling pond is an effluent one, but you can also use it. Nobody will be able to blame you for lack of accuracy!...
For your bed reading collection take a look at:

It's a lot of reading indeed!

Good luck again!
