Sewage water is full of biodegradable contaminants and impurities. However, if it properly treated, this wastewater is a good option for various secondary uses. In Sewage Treatment Plants, wastewater is subjected to various techniques and processes so as to get rid of pollutants and contaminants. There are many benefits of a well run Sewage Treatment Plant, the first among them being lesser environmental degradation. Substituting fresh water with treated wastewater can considerably cut the operational costs. And certainly, from the point of view of public health, wastewater treatment and management has a very significance.
There are several important units or sections in Sewage Treatment Plants and each of them plays a very crucial role in the treatment processes. Some of them are discussed below:
Bar Screen Chamber : Bar Screen Chamber comprises of vertical bars. The gap between these bars may vary from 10 to 25 mm. Most of the solid particles/articles get trapped here and thus primary filtration of sewage water is accomplished. The filtered water is then directed to oil and grease trap and eventually to Equalization Tank.
Equalization Tank: Equalization Tank acts as a buffer. It collects the sewage water feed from the preceding units and passes it to the other sections of the Sewage Treatment Plant at fairly constant flow rate. This steady flow rate is of importance during various treatment stages.
Aeration Tank: Aeration Tank can be considered as the heart of a Sewage Treatment Plant. Sewage water comprises of biodegradable contaminants. Microbes feed on these and thus microbes are added to the water in the Aeration Tank. Microbes need air to stay active and hence air is also blown into the Aeration Tank. These microbes get rid of biodegradable contaminants by feeding on them.
There are several other sections that perform one or the other function. Eventually, Sewage Treatment Plant is a must because the water from these plants is to be used for secondary uses in industries. Untreated water may result into malfunctioning of the Industrial Water System thereby affecting the overall efficiency of the equipment.
