The Benefits of a Modern Wastewater Treatment System

Did you know that wastewater treatment is one of the most important aspects of environmental protection? A wastewater treatment system helps keep our water clean and safe, and it also helps protect the environment. A wastewater treatment system receives, stores, treats and disposes of waste water from toilets, sinks, washing machines, baths and all other domestic water-using appliances. When we talk about a wastewater treatment system, we usually refer to not only a septic tank, but accompanying pipes, drains, percolation areas and fittings which ensure that the water is treated and discharged correctly. Many modern builds have their own wastewater treatment system somewhere on their property. There are many benefits to having a modern wastewater treatment system. 1. Rids Potential Diseases Wastewater treatment systems eliminate disease-causing bacteria and kill harmful organisms. It filters out such contaminants before the wastewater leaves the tank and enters the ground. This filtering process prevents diseases from entering water sources or reaching plants and farm animals, helping to protect the environment. 2. Low-Cost Wastewater systems can last for up to 15 years if they are maintained correctly. They provide a very cost-effective solution for treating water and keeping unwanted bacteria at bay. There are many grants and other forms of financial assistance available now to help you with the cost of purchasing and/or maintaining a domestic wastewater system. 3. Minimal Odour Emissions In comparison to earlier systems, modern waste water systems radiate minimal odours. Odour emissions often put people off investing in a septic tank or similar system because they could not stand the odours it could often protrude. With modern systems, once they are cared for correctly, odours are not an issue. 4. No Water Bills Water charges are an unfortunate reality in many countries in today’s world. If you have your own wastewater system on your property, you do not have to worry about water bills. Pumping water into the system costs very little too, so you certainly save on costs in this regard. 5. Little Maintenance Modern wastewater systems require very little maintenance and last much longer than the older models. Depending on usage, a septic tank might need de-sludging every 1 to 2 years or so, with maintenance inspections conducted only every 2 to 3 years. You can conduct your own inspections in between by checking for some tell-tale signs of problems. 6. Break Down Solids Faster  Most modern wastewater systems are aerobic systems which have the […]


Water is the basic resource for guaranteeing the life of all living beings on this planet. Access to water, sanitation, and hygiene is a fundamental right. However, billions of people throughout the world are battling daily against enormous difficulties accessing the most basic services. THE PROBLEMS WITH CONTAMINATED WATER. Without water, life as we know it would not exist. All living beings from humans -animals – plants-bacteria require clean water to survive. Of the planet’s total water reserves, only 2.5% is fresh water  – and of this, only 0.4% is fit for human consumption. The world water council estimates 1.1 billion people lack access to safe water due to environmental pollution caused by sewage & industrial. The increasing availability of quality drinking water is an important problem affecting every country. It is estimated that at least 1 out of every 4 people will be affected by water scarcity by 2050. Water scarcity will continue to increase due in part to global warming and desertification. Humans are the main cause of all water pollution. More than 80% of the wastewater resulting from human activity is dumped in rivers or the sea without any kind of water treatment, producing contamination. WHAT IS WASTEWATER AND WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT OF IT ENTAIL? Wastewater is any form of water that has been contaminated by a commercial or domestic process. This includes water resulting from sewage and large-scale industries such as construction, mining, and manufacturing. Wastewater treatment is a process that removes harmful contaminants producing an effluent that can be returned to the water cycle with minimal environmental issues. Given its importance, more and more governments are finally realizing that they need to take actionable steps to improve and better regulate their wastewater treatment processes. In Canada, there are mandatory minimum requirements for effluent quality established under the fisheries act ( HOW DO WE SOLVE THE WATER PROBLEM? Water treatment is increasingly necessary due to environmental pollution and the growing needs of the global population.We must conserve and protect the limited freshwater reserves available to ensure the health and safety of all living beings. Both education and regulation can be utilized to ensure that water treatment is consistently utilized to eliminate and/or reduce the contamination present in water. This can consist of many different processes including but not limited: Physical Methods such as sand or screen filtration can physically remove contaminants. Chemical – Coagulation/flocculation, ion-exchange, & neutralization can be used to react with and remove contaminants. Biological – Utilization of small […]

The Importance of Saving Water

Water is necessary for the sustenance of human life. While the supply seems abundant, water is not a limitless resource, particularly the fresh potable water most necessary to human survival. Without conservation efforts, this vital supply of water may be exhausted. Conservation carries economic benefits as well, as energy and equipment are also conserved as a direct result of water preservation efforts. Preservation of Farming Particularly in California’s Central Valley, increased urbanization has resulted in the draining of precious aquifers and surface water supplies from rural farmland. As in other areas of the country, the Central Valley is an important provider of food crops for the state and the nation, and increased water demand in cities has reduced the supply for the very food needed to sustain these cities. The United States Geological Survey reports that the Tulare Valley, the hottest and driest part of California’s Central Valley, continues to show declines in groundwater levels and the related groundwater storage. Environmental Factors The vast majority of life on Earth is at least indirectly tied to the supply of water. Conservation protects the balance of life on Earth, which would be upset by a reduction in the water supply. Overuse of water threatens other life forms which help sustain us. For example, the United States Bureau of Reclamation reports that, during the past 100 years, some 21 species of fish have become extinct in the 17 Western states in part due to the alteration of habitat. Some of this habitat change is due to the expansion of human populations, and the same population increase has also increased the demand for water from these areas. Personal Cost Water is not processed and delivered to your doorstep for free. Every time you use water, your local utility charges you a fee. The greater the demand for water, the greater the price you will be charged. By conserving water, you will save money both in terms of the quantity used and the price per unit. Energy Consumption Over-consumption of water leads to the over-consumption of another non-renewable resource, energy. Water in your home must be heated for a number of uses, such as cleaning and bathing, and this takes energy. Additionally, your local water utility must use energy to process and deliver water to your home, so the over-consumption of water requires more energy out of the utility company as well.
