Waste Water Treatment
This stage involves screening and grinding of the wastewater to remove large objects and debris.
This stage involves settling of suspended solids and removal of oil and grease.
This stage involves the use of bacteria to break down the organic matter.
This stage involves the use of physical, chemical, and biological processes to further purify the wastewater.
This stage involves the use of chlorine or ultraviolet rays to kill any remaining pathogens.
Sludge Treatment and Disposal
This stage involves the removal of any remaining solids and the disposal of them in an appropriate manner.
Protects Public Health
One of the most important benefits of wastewater treatment is protecting public health. Wastewater treatment removes contaminants that could lead to the spread of disease, illness, and infection.
Prevents Contamination of Water Sources
Wastewater treatment also prevents contamination of water sources like rivers, lakes, ponds, and oceans. Without wastewater treatment, wastewater would be released into natural water sources and contaminate them, leading to further public health and environmental issues.
Wastewater treatment reduces pollution in the environment by removing pollutants, toxins, and hazardous materials from wastewater before it is released back into the environment.
Wastewater treatment can also be used to recycle resources like water, energy, and nutrients. Wastewater can be treated and reused for a variety of applications, including agricultural irrigation, industrial cooling, and landscape irrigation.
Wastewater treatment can also help boost local economies. By treating wastewater, municipalities can save money on water bills and reduce the cost of managing wastewater disposal. This can result in lower taxes for residents and businesses.
