What is Water Treatment & Conservation

Wastewater treatment is a process used to convert wastewater which is no longer needed or suitable for any proper human use. Wastewater Treatment which is basically used for municipal sources called sewage treatment. It is also called water reclamation and implies avoidance of disposal by use of treated wastewater effluent for various purposes. Treatment means removing impurities from water being treated; and some methods of treatment are applicable to both water and wastewater. The physical infrastructure used for wastewater treatment is called a wastewater treatment plant.

Benefits of Water Treatment & Conservation

We consider wastewater treatment as a water use because it is so interconnected with the other uses of water. Much of the water used by homes, industries, and businesses must be treated before it is released back to the environment.

So why treat wastewater?

Water Habitats

Clean water is critical for life that depends on shoreline, beaches and marshes. They are critical habitats for hundreds of species of fish and other aquatic life. Migratory water birds use the areas for resting and feeding. to plants and animals that live in water. This is important to the fishing industry, water bodies, and environment.

Health

If water is not clean and germ free, it can carry disease. Since we live, work and play so close to water activities such as swimming, fishing, boating, harmful bacteria have to be removed to make water safe.

Process Of Water Treatment

Primary Wastewater treatment consists of temporarily holding the sewage in a quiescent basin where heavy solids can settle to the bottom while oil, grease and lighter solids float to the surface. The settled and floating materials are removed and the remaining liquid may be discharged or subjected to secondary treatment.
Secondary treatment removes dissolved and suspended biological matter. It is typically performed by indigenous, water-borne micro-organisms in a managed habitat. It may require a separation process to remove the micro-organisms from the treated water prior to discharge or tertiary treatment.
