Wastewater treatment

Mt. Martha water treatment plant is located in Mt Martha, Victoria the main client of South East Water.
It however seized being in operation in January 2015, two years since it was incorporated. The company dealt with water, civil, Instrumental control Automation and mechanicals. The Mt. Martha wastewater treatment plant is valued at AU$2.5 million. It started in 2013 all through to 2015 when it collapsed. It is located in Mt. Martha Victoria. It was created as an ongoing SEW plan looking to contain inmates oduor emissions acting as an upgrade.
First, sewage enters the plant, flows through a screen removing large and floating objects to avoid clogging the pipes and equipment in general. From screening, the sewage proceeds to a grit chamber which has sand and small stones settle at the bottom of the tank allowing. They then proceed to the secondary clarifier before being added chlorine to purify before testing.
The first stag allows removal of large particles from the water and organic material but it does not remove all the solid materials The large items and affluent are removed after a bar screen is used and the influent is taken to a landfill in an effort of preserving the environment.
At times after the first stag, fine grit passes through which in turn may as well cause damages to the plant equipment especially the pumps. The very small grit that is not visible is removed in the grit chamber. The grit is physically removed from the bottom of the chamber giving way to the organic material and water to flow to Stage three of wastewater management is where all solid waste is removed from the wastewater. The large clarifiers are up to 75 feet in diameter, and they allow the large clarifiers to sink to the bottom leaving the cleaner influent to flow
An example of a primary clarifier which is used to remove large particles from wastewater. It is the third stage of waste water management after grit removal and before aeration. the next stage Wastewater management encourages the acceleration of the natural process of bacteria. By pumping oxygen into the aeration tank, the system encourages purification of oxygen
Secondary clarifier which allows for sediments from the treated water to settle and the treated water flows forward to receive chlorine while awaiting the water testing. From the aeration process, the affluent flows to the secondary clarifier which allows for very small solids to sink at the bottom of the tank consisting of active bacteria. Not all this sludge is wasted as part of the sludge is returned to the aeration tank to accelerate for chlorination
The holding tank is among the most important parts of any wastewater treatment plant
breakdown of organic material. After the second run, the excess sludge is discarded
The chlorination stage is the most common stage of purification and is inexpensive allowing for disinfection of the water
Final testing are done in stage seven leaving the water ready for use.
The optimal test for pure after is done in the effluent disposal stage. Despite having tests although the other chambers, this last test determines whether the water is ready for use in the environment
All things screened out in the screening process are washed, dry the screening then the screening is put in a bin that goes to landfills
All solids removed in the primary clarifier is disposed off since they do not have any environmental value
The clarifiers condition is notorious in the winter. Everything from the clarifier tanks is held in a holding tank which goes into the secondary clarifier for second time Wastewater treatment is done to convert wastewater to an effluent which in turn is returned to the water cycle- This is done for many reasons including preserving the environment as well as ensuring there is adequate water in contemporary society
This treatment of water is done in a water treatment plant where treatment can be industrial or domestic. The main Difference between a domestic wastewater usage plant and an industrial plant is that an industrial manufacturing plant is discharged from manufacturing plants while a domestic wastewater is discharged from residential and commercial establishments.
A domestic wastewater treatment facility is the easiest to make compared to the industrial wastewater treatment facility
It is the most common and some individuals have them as their personal plants for residential purposes.
The material removed from the plant is done to avoid clogging of the pipes thus the rugs and sponge are removed from the sewage.
In later processes, organic matter and chemicals re removed thereby purifying the water.
