Wastewater treatment is a process used to remove contaminants from wastewater and convert it into an effluent that can be returned to the water cycle. Once returned to the water cycle, the effluent creates an acceptable impact on the environment or is reused for various purposes (called water reclamation). Wastewater refers to any non-potable aqueous effluent from sources including industrial (process water), municipal, landfill leachates, and contaminated groundwater (Superfund Sites, etc.). The constant variability of contaminants necessitates robust and reactive treatment processes involving both aerobic and anaerobic digestion. Most wastewater treatment requires multiple processes. Thus it is important to assemble a team of experts knowledgeable about the technologies being considered and how to combine them to achieve final effluent quality.
Wastewater treatment plants are distinguished by the type of wastewater treated. There are numerous processes that can be used to treat wastewater depending on the type and extent of the contamination. The treatment steps include physical, chemical, and biological treatment processes. These types of wastewater treatment plants include sewage treatment plants, industrial wastewater treatment plants, agricultural wastewater treatment plants, and leachate treatment plants.
