Water plays a major role in the manufacturing process for various industries. It can be used as a coolant, a solvent, or for many other chemical based reactions. These manufacturing processes leave behind wastewater, also known as effluent, which contains both toxic and non-toxic materials. If it isn’t disposed of properly, effluent can do damage to the environment, which is why wastewater treatment services are so important. Here’s how wastewater treatment services work.
Wastewater treatment plans need to address the different effluent compositions of various companies. The physical and chemical parameters of the wastewater need to be taken into account. It’s important to consider characteristics like temperature, color, total dissolved solids, the presence of inorganic substances, alkalinity, hardness, and much more.
Wastewater treatment plans should also consider the biological parameters of effluent, ie. whether there are any microbial pathogens in the wastewater. These pathogens can transmit diseases such as typhoid, cholera, and dysentery, so it’s important to keep them out of the water supply.
The wastewater treatment process removes physical, chemical, and biological materials from water to ensure that it’s eco-friendly and safe to reuse. Without this process, the planet and our health would suffer.
