This paper is about water purification. Water that is safe to drink is called potable water. Our freshwater is definitely not evenly put out throughout the world (www.science.howstuffworks.com). More than half of the world’s water supply is contained in just nine different countries: United States, Colombia, Canada, Brazil, the Democratic Republic of Congo, China, India, Russia, and Indonesia (science.howstuffworks.com). The Middle Eastern countries use the least amount of water per person because there are very few natural and reliable sources of fresh and clean water. Right now more than a billion people (about 17% of the world’s population) don’t have access to clean water (www.science.howstuffworks.com).
...sis. At this stage the treatment plant has the wastewater pumped through membranes. This process eliminates viruses, bacteria, and protozoa that are in the wastewater. Advanced Oxidation happens next in the treatment process. UV and or ozone and hydrogen peroxide and used to further disinfect and remove contaminants from the wastewater. The last step is called Fresh Water Blend. As stated in the name of the process Freshwater is now blended with the wastewater. Either the water is blended with surface water reservoirs or added to groundwater, where this water can remain in these reservoirs for an average of 6 months to be further purified by natural processes. Once this water is taken from the groundwater or reservoir is goes through the same standard water purification process all drinking water undergoes to meet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standards.
The key stakeholders are Peter Vyas, the manager of filtration unit and Cynthia Jackson who is the vice president of water management division. Vyas was convinced that the survival of the unit depended upon innovative growth and thus he appointed a technology evaluation team with the responsibility of using technology to solve the problem of obtaining clean water in remote regions, by developing a small-scale oxidation system that enabled waste-water disinfection in small batches. His utmost concern is the technological aspect of developing the product. On the other hand, Cynthia’s perspective was shaped by the marketing angle of the product. She recommended the development of future proposals using a rigorous three phase process which links the markets analysis and technological development to busines...
1. Reason for the process. Water plays such an important role in our daily lives. 70% of our body is composed of water. 70% of the earth surface is also made up of water, but out of the 70%, only 1/3 of water is consumable.
Waste water treatment plants are essential to communities of all sizes and must work efficiently. Waste water treatment plant primary priority and responsibility is the treatment of incoming sewage water by the removal of biological and chemical wastes so it can be treated and recycled for future use. There are many government agencies and standards set forth to govern and observe the successful treatment of sewage such as: the Department of Environmental Quality, the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System and the Clean Water Act of 1972. Compliance and constant monitoring of the treatment plant’s operations are important; as they protect the surrounding community. A spill or backflow of sewage due to a complete system malfunction could potentially be detrimental to the environment and local community. A precise system, of which must be compliant according to government standards, is critical to maintain low levels of wastes that are returned to neighboring water systems after treatment.
