Wastewater Treatment &Disposal I

Dublin Core

Description

Proper wastewater treatment and disposal is essential for the vitality of a functioning society. Without it, a community’s environment can be severely polluted and the health of the public is at great risk. To better understand the relationship between wastewater treatment and water treatment and distribution, examine the urban water cycle (link). Like the typical hydrologic
cycle, which shows the natural movement of water in the environment, the urban water cycle shows how water is moved in an urban environment. In some cases, as shown is FIG XX, (show detailed picture of typical community
water/wastewater infrastructure) wastewater that has been treated by a wastewater treatment plant will be discharged back into a natural water body. Water from that water body will then be used by downstream communities as source water for their water treatment
plants. If either of these two treatment facilities are not operating to current regulations and standards, public health is at risk. In addition, if the wastewater treatment facility is not operating properly there can also be additional environmental damage to the water body
