Sewage Treatment Plants: Working, Maintenance And Importance

Large industries, factories, and mills generate thousands of tons of waste every day. Some of this waste is so harmful that if it is left in a neighboring area, it can lead to various diseases and land and water contamination. 

Solid waste is easy to remove but it is not easy to remove chemical and biological contaminants from this waste so that it can be sent to safe areas. A wide range of wastewater and sewage treatment services including sludge and aeration treatments.

Sewage Treatment Plants

Though very simple, the working of a sewage treatment plant requires careful attention to detail and maintenance. Here we have explained the working of the plant.

Sedimentation: The first process involves sedimentation of solid waste so that only the fluid floats on top. This fluid is then separated from the solid waste with the help of a clarification process or the machine is called a clarifier.

Disinfection: Depending on the waste, there are several processes that help with sewage treatment. But generally, the final process in sewage treatment is disinfection. This process helps disinfect the feces and remove toxicity so that it is fit for disposal in local water reservoirs.

Drainage and sewage treatment have been a part of our culture since the early civilizations. However, there are some third world countries that do not have such plants in their factories. 

In the absence of such plants, it will be very difficult to keep waste material under control and manage diseases arising from air and water pollution.
