What does a wastewater treatment consultant or wastewater treatment expert do? Wastewater treatment cleans raw sewage or industrial process wastewater until it can be discharged to the environment, under the conditions of government permits, or until it can be reused, for purposes such as cooling water, toilet flushing or irrigation. Under advanced wastewater treatment, with multiple safeguards, it is even technically possible to produce potable drinking water or groundwater recharge water. Wastewater treatment incorporates interacting biological, chemical and physical unit processes. In recent years, increased attention has been given to nutrient removal, trace contaminants, reuse and stormwater treatment. Some wastewater treatment projects include production of biogas for electric power generation, motor vehicle operation or building heating.
A wastewater treatment consultant or wastewater treatment expert is a person, typically from an engineering background, who understands wastewater treatment unit processes, and the associated evolving treatment technologies. A wastewater treatment consultant or expert can guide a wastewater treatment project through feasibility or economic studies, facilities planning, design, construction and operation start-up. Tasks may include needs identification, technology evaluation, funding and permitting assistance, preparation of construction contract documents, and construction oversight.
