What is Wastewater?
Wastewater refers to water that has been utilized for domestic, industrial, or commercial purposes and subsequently impacted by such activities. Due to the varied sources and applications, wastewater composition can be highly diverse, making it challenging to define with precision. Typically, wastewater consists of 99.9% water, with the remaining 0.1% containing organic matter, microorganisms, and inorganic compounds. Wastewater is often discharged into different environments, including lakes, ponds, streams, rivers, and oceans..
Importance of Wastewater Treatment
Wastewater treatment services play a crucial role in safeguarding both human health and the environment. Clean water is essential for various forms of life, including wildlife, recreational activities, and overall well-being; it should be free from harmful substances that could compromise the integrity of living organisms. Proper wastewater treatment is vital to prevent damage to ecosystems. The majority of water used by households, industries, and businesses requires treatment before being released back into the environment.
The primary objective of wastewater treatment is to remove as much of the suspended solids as possible before the remaining water, known as effluent, is discharged back into the environment. The decomposition of solid materials consumes oxygen, which is vital for the plants and animals inhabiting water bodies.
The initial stage of treatment, known as “primary treatment,” eliminates approximately 60% of suspended solids from wastewater. This process involves aerating the wastewater to reintroduce oxygen. Subsequently, “secondary treatment” removes over 90% of suspended solids.
Wastewater Treatment Processes
There are four primary methods employed in wastewater treatment:
- Physical Water Treatment: This process involves separating liquids from solids through filtration and skimming, without any chemical sorting.
- Biological Water Treatment: Introducing microorganisms to break down the organic matter present in wastewater.
- Chemical Water Treatment: The use of chemicals, such as chlorine, to eliminate bacteria and purify the water.
- Sludge Treatment: Utilizing techniques to separate liquids and solids from wastewater with the least possible residual moisture.
