WasteWater Treatment Plants

Wastewater Treatment Plants

Wastewater treatment plant (wwtp) also called wastewater treatment works can mean one of the following:

  • Sewage treatment – treatment and disposal of human waste.
  • Industrial wastewater treatment – the treatment of wet wastes from manufacturing industry and commerce including mining, quarrying and heavy industries.
  • Agricultural wastewater treatment – treatment and disposal of liquid animal waste, pesticide residues etc. from agriculture.
  • Waste management – re-use, recycling and disposal of solid waste from manufacturing, commerce and domestic sources.

septic tank is a key component of the septic system, a small-scale sewage treatment system common in areas with no connection to main sewage pipes provided by local governments or private corporations.

Sand filters are also an option for clients that do not have mains power or require cheap running costs.

Sub-surface Irrigation Systems

Sub surface drip irrigation involves the application of water to lawn via pipes, which are installed totally underground. The pipe carries evenly spaced drippers, which deliver water directly to the root zone of the turf.

Micro spray irrigation is most commonly used for gardens. It is relatively low cost and easy to install irrigation system. Tip: Drip irrigation is usually best for water conservation.

 

Grease Traps

Grease traps (also known as grease interceptors, grease recovery devices and grease converters) are plumbing devices designed to intercept most greases and solids before they enter a wastewater disposal system.

Neutralising Tanks are designed for interception of greasy waste prior to discharge into sewer. Frankston Concrete Products (FCP) also manufacture above and below ground pvc Neutralising Tanks.

Rain Water Tanks

rainwater tank is a water tank used to collect and store rain water runoff, typically from rooftops via rain gutters. Rainwater tanks are devices for collecting and maintaining harvested rain.

Greywater, or sullage, is wastewater generated from domestic activities such as laundry, dishwashing, and bathing, which can be recycled on-site for uses such as landscape irrigation and constructed wetlands.

Domestic wastewater is usually combined at the sewer, so that grey- and blackwaters are removed together using a shared sewerage system in a process called elimination.
