Wastewater Treatment

Explains the process of a typical wastewater plant.

This paper introduces, discusses and explains the basic operations of a typical wastewater treatment plant. Specifically, it describes the basic plant configuration, design, and the normal operations that take place in the plant.
“Wastewater treatment plants are an extremely necessary element of living in the 21st century, however, some kind of sewage treatment has been used since Roman times, the earliest know sewer system in Rome drained the Forum. Early sewer systems also existed in London as early as the 13th century and in Paris before the 16th centuries (“Sewerage,” 2000), but in fact, only a few houses actually connected to the systems, and most raw waste was simply dumped into nearby rivers.”
