Industries, commercial establishments, as well as households are producing sewage every day. The sewage contains water from toilets, bathroom as well as drain water, water from industrial processing etc. So the wastewater should be purified for its proper utilization or reuse. Sewage Treatment is process to clean the wastewater which comes from industries, houses and other areas. Sewage Treatment is the method of eliminating unwanted waste products from wastewater and sewage. This treatment process removes the physical, chemical and biological contaminants from waste water. Such Sewage Treatment is important to clean the polluted water and make it fit for reuse.


  • The main objective of Sewage Treatment System is to produce environmentally-safe water, useful for various purposes.
  • It’s another objective is to separate the solid waste present in the water and make it useful as a farm fertilizer.
  • Its objective is to purify the waste water and make it fit for various purposes.
