Not many of us know about waste water treatment and so I decided to read about it on the Internet. I came across quite a few facts and would like to share them with my readers. This is a subject that most of us do not think seriously about. Do you know what waste water is? How it can be treated? All of us use showers, sinks and also toilets every day. This creates the waste water. Can we do anything with this waste water? There are wastewater treatment plants. They treat the waste water and help to keep our planet healthy. Let us know more about water and waste water systems.
This is how the waste water is treated. The water that is used in our homes is drained down the pipes and drains almost every day. This waste water then goes to the local sewers. From the sewer systems the wastewater is carried from our houses to the different wastewater treatment plants. This is interesting, isn’t it? In the waste water treatment plants the water is separated into black water and grey water. The black water consists of mainly fecal matter and urine. This matter is decomposed. The grey water comes from different washing processes in our homes. This water is reusable. We can use it in our toilets and in our gardens.
There is a lot to know about water and waste water systems. The waste water goes through three different processes in waste water treatment plant. The first step is the primary treatment, the second step is called the secondary treatment and the last or the final step is known as the tertiary treatment.
