What Is Wastewater Treatment? Wastewater treatment is the process of dealing with water that is the waste by product of human processes. This can be from anything to surface runoff from urbanisation preventing water naturally soaking away and making its way back into the water cycle; sewage from domestic use and also as a by product of industrial process such as manufacture or energy generation.
One of the issues that comes with urbanisation in heavily populated areas, is Stormwater and Stormwater Management. Stormwater is water that occurs as a result of precipitation, but can also be associated with melting snow. When stormwater is not absorbed by the ground, it is known as surface runoff.
One of the issues with modern civilisation is the amount of waste it produces in many forms. Industrial processes especially often produce wastewater that is in need for cleansing before it can return to the water cycle. Therefore, appropriate wastewater management techniques are required for the safety of the population and the well-being of the environment.
