Water that is polluted by humans, through residential, industrial or commercial activity, is called wastewater. These pollutants are often toxic substances and a hazard to the health of the people who consume or use it. It’s a hazard to the environment if left to sink into the ground. This gives rise to the need for treatment of wastewater, in order to remove the pollutants from water, and make it safe for consumption, and use. It must be treated even if merely let out in the environment, say to sink into the ground or to mix with sea water.
Why You Should Conserve Water?
Water conservation also indirectly helps in maintaining the water quality. Excessive water drawing (exceeding the water holding capacity of the soil) from ground sources allows ground water contamination from neighboring areas or sea. So, avoid unnecessary water drawing from ground sources. The volume of wastewater discharge can be reduced substantially through conservation of water.
This is a good idea for a number of reasons:
Significant reduction in ZLD SYSTEM MANUFACTURE flows also can save on personnel costs and can eliminate or postpone the need to upgrade or expand treatment facilities. It lowers sewer charges and taxes for homeowners. Water conservation also directly benefits homeowners with onsite systems. Simply by reducing water use, homeowners can extend the life of their systems for many years, prevent system failures, and minimize maintenance costs, potentially saving hundreds of dollars.
There are additional benefits such as lower monthly water bills, reduced amount of money that homeowners and communities spend for wastewater treatment, an increased efficiency of wastewater treatment plant, and savings on energy costs.
Nonresidential wastewater in small communities is generated by diverse sources such as offices, businesses, supermarkets, restaurants, schools, hospitals, farms, manufacturers and other commercial, industrial, and institutional entities. Storm-water is a nonresidential source and carries trash and other pollutants from streets, as well as pesticides and fertilizers from yards and fields.
Because of the different characteristics of nonresidential wastewater, communities need to assess each source individually or compare similar types of nonresidential sources to ensure that adequate treatment is provided.
