If wastewater is not properly treated, then the environment and human health can be negatively impacted.
The correct wastewater treatment is more of an art than a science. Even when removing the same contaminants in two different facilities, the product and process “mix” our experts use to help you stay in compliance may be very different. That’s when 30 years of experience makes all the difference—and trouble-shooting and corrective actions are more swiftly put into place.
The major aim of wastewater treatment is to remove as much of the suspended solids as possible before the remaining water, called effluent, is discharged back to the environment. As solid material decays, it uses up oxygen, which is needed by the plants and animals living in the water.
