Sewage sludge is a byproduct of treated wastewater. It is composed of both organic and inorganic materials, a large concentration of plant nutrients, organic chemicals, as well as pathogens. Therefore, it is extremely important to properly treat such sludge in order to minimize its environmental repercussions.

Currently, sewage sludge management is a huge challenge in the field of environmental engineering. New effective solutions for the treatment of wastewater led to an improvement of the quality of the final effluent but considerably increased the volume of produced sewage sludge, which increases each year.

Sewage sludge treatment describes the processes used to manage and dispose of sewage sludge produced during sewage treatment. Sludge is mostly water with lesser amounts of solid material removed from liquid sewage. Primary sludge includes settleable solids removed during primary treatment in primary clarifiers. Secondary sludge separated in secondary clarifiers includes treated sewage sludge from secondary treatment bioreactors.

Skip to Main Content. Treatment Steps. Step 1: Screening and Pumping The incoming wastewater passes through screening equipment where objects such as rags, wood fragments, plastics, and grease are removed.

The screened wastewater is then pumped to the next step: grit removal. Step 2: Grit Removal In this step, heavy but fine material such as sand and gravel is removed from the wastewater.

This material is also disposed of in a landfill. Step 3: Primary Settling The material, which will settle, but at a slower rate than step two, is taken out using large circular tanks called clarifiers. The settled material, called primary sludge, is pumped off the bottom and the wastewater exits the tank from the top. Floating debris such as grease is skimmed off the top and sent with the settled material to digesters. In this step, chemicals are also added to remove phosphorus.

Through biological degradation, the pollutants are consumed by microorganisms and transformed into cell tissue, water, and nitrogen. The biological activity occurring in this step is very similar to what occurs at the bottom of lakes and rivers, but in these areas the degradation takes years to accomplish. The biology activated sludge is continuously pumped from the bottom of the clarifiers and returned to the aeration tanks in step four.

Step 6: Filtration The clarified effluent is polished in this step by filtering through 10 micron polyester media. The material captured on the surface of the disc filters is periodically backwashed and returned to the head of the plant for treatment. Step 7: Disinfection To assure the treated wastewater is virtually free of bacteria, ultraviolet disinfection is used after the filtration step. The ultraviolet treatment process kills remaining bacteria to levels within our discharge permit.

Step 8: Oxygen Uptake The treated water, now in a very stabilized high quality state, is aerated if necessary to bring the dissolved oxygen up to permit level. After this step, the treated water passes through the effluent outfall where it joins the Oconomowoc River. The water discharged to the river must meet stringent requirements set by the DNR.

The sludge treatment process involves four steps as described here. Arrow Left Arrow Right.

The residue that accumulates in sewage treatment plants is called sludge or biosolids. Sewage sludge is the solid, semisolid, or slurry residual material that is produced as a by-product of wastewater treatment processes. This residue is commonly classified as primary and secondary sludge. Primary sludge is generated from chemical precipitation , sedimentation, and other primary processes, whereas secondary sludge is the activated waste biomass resulting from biological treatments. Some sewage plants also receive septage or septic tank solids from household on-site wastewater treatment systems. Quite often the sludges are combined together for further treatment and disposal.

Он с силой стукнул бутылкой по столу и вцепился в рубашку Беккера. - Она девушка Эдуардо, болван. Только тронь ее, и он тебя прикончит. ГЛАВА 56 Мидж Милкен в сердцах выскочила из своего кабинета и уединилась в комнате для заседаний, которая располагалась точно напротив. Кроме тридцати футов ого стола красного дерева с буквами АНБ в центре столешницы, выложенной из черных пластинок вишневого и орехового дерева, комнату украшали три акварели Мариона Пайка, ваза с листьями папоротника, мраморная барная стойка и, разумеется, бачок для охлаждения воды фирмы Спарклетс. Мидж налила себе стакан воды, надеясь, что это поможет ей успокоиться.

Джабба снова вздохнул. - Это была шутка, Мидж.  - Но он знал, что сказанного не вернешь. ГЛАВА 62 Коммандер и Сьюзан стояли у закрытого люка и обсуждали, что делать. - Итак, внизу у нас погибший Чатрукьян, - констатировал Стратмор.  - Если мы вызовем помощь, шифровалка превратится в цирк. - Так что же вы предлагаете? - спросила Сьюзан.

Мы выполняем свою работу. Мы обнаружили статистический сбой и хотим выяснить, в чем. Кроме того, - добавила она, - я хотела бы напомнить Стратмору, что Большой Брат не спускает с него глаз. Пусть хорошенько подумает, прежде чем затевать очередную авантюру с целью спасения мира.  - Она подняла телефонную трубку и начала набирать номер.

Клянусь, убью. - Ты не сделаешь ничего подобного! - оборвал его Стратмор.  - Этим ты лишь усугубишь свое положе… - Он не договорил и произнес в трубку: - Безопасность.

Он был принят сегодня утром. Его карточка должна лежать где-то сверху. Беккер еще больше усилил акцент, но так, чтобы собеседница могла понять, что ему нужно, и говорил слегка сбивчиво, подчеркивая свою крайнюю озабоченность.
