TERTIARY TREATMENT

Advanced cleaning of wastewater that goes beyond the secondary or biological stage, removing nutrients such as phosphorus, nitrogen, and most BOD and suspended solids. The tertiary treatment stage is considered the final cleaning process that will ensure greater wastewater quality before re-use, dischargement, or recycling. Tertiary treatment is primarily utilized to guarantee that the treated effluent is discharged throughout the environment and suitable for all other aquatic life forms which include algae and weeds. Filtration is another widely used water treatment solution for applications regarding wastewater filtration.
