Wastewater Unit Process Inspection: Sedimentation Mobile App
Sedimentation is a wastewater treatment that is one step in the filtration process.
How does it work?
Sewage or other liquids are slowly pumped into the tank and solids and other particles settle at the bottom of the tank, forming sludge. It is important that there is a proper flow rate between units, that the sludge and scum collections systems are functioning and that any chemical, such as chlorine, added during the process is noted. Effluent weirs and characteristics, as well as baffle systems, should all be properly documented. The Wastewater Inspection Unit Process Sedimentation app should be used for an inspection of the tank that filters water in a treatment facility. It will ensure that the treatment plant is working to maintain water quality and limit the water pollution during disposal of the water.
