Across the globe 90% of sewage and waste water goes untreated. This untreated water is often used in agriculture and even for washing in which causes grave health problems. This global problem also leads to water pollution which can leave adults and children with illnesses and diseases. Sewage treatment is a simple and effective way around this.
Sewage treatment works by removing contaminants from wastewater; water that’s been used before whether that’s in showers, in toilets or in someone’s washing machine. Recycling this water for use in agriculture, gardening and even in some cases drinking is something that we should all think about.
There are various methods of sewage treatment, some involving a sceptic tank which can leak, causing ground pollution and foul odours. More environmentally friendly ways of treating wastewater are popular throughout the developed world. Using these methods, an anaerobic process is initially utilised to remove solids from the water. Once the water has undergone this treatment the amount of nitrogen and pathogen loads are reduced, this time through an aerobic process. The resulting sludge is removed leaving clean, clear water which is ready for sterilisation. The final stage is to treat the clean water in a sterilisation tank so it’s odourless and ready to be used again.
Sewage treatment brings with it such a host of benefits. Giving you multiple uses from the water you pay for, you can also rest assured that the water you’re using is environmentally safe and in no way damaging the environment. It helps to protect one of the earth’s most precious commodities and, if done properly, can use low amounts of energy and prevent any pollution.
