A sewage treatment plant is an installation designed to purify various substances that can be solid, liquid, or semi-solid. This system undergoes three stages of sewage breakdown: primary settlement, biological treatment, and final treatment to clear effluent. The end product is clean, reduced ammonia liquid that can be safely discharged into the ground through a drainage field or directly into a stream.
Being named after their treated substances, treatment plants come in various forms such as:
Wastewater treatment plant – treating wastewater
Effluent treatment plant – handling effluent
Sewage treatment plant – dealing with sewage
Water treatment plant – processing water
By installing a sewage treatment plant, your property becomes more sustainable and geared to maintain an efficient waste management system.
