A test for E coli could confirm the presence of raw sewage in the lagoon. There are a number of sources for these test kits including Amazon dot com. One has to be extremely careful to avoid contamination when doing this test.

Note that turnover of anaerobic sludges on the bottom of lagoons that generally occurs in the early spring could also be the source of this odor. However, at the same time, the discharge of wastes from toilets into this lagoon would definitely add to the buildup of said sludge.

I'm trying to find a reasonably priced rental in late March and if I come down, I'd be happy to take a first hand look at the situation.
