What I will be writing about in todays weird but wonderful factual article about is sewage treatment and how sewage treatment effects us and why it is needed in our society.
Apart from the obvious fact that sewage treatment is needed otherwise we will literally be swimming in our own you know what… Their is more to sewage treatment than just dealing with our waste that leaves our homes. First of all for those who don’t know what sewage is (trust me there is people out there who don’t know!)
Sewage Is waste water that leaves our homes and properties and is collected at a sewage treatment plant.
Interesting fact: Did you know? Sewage is 99% water and only 1% waste!
This is where sewage treatment plants are introduced. These large industrial sites are where all of an areas sewage is collected and treated so that it is dafe to release back into our precious environment.
How is t collected? Sewage is collected through our drainage, such as a twin wall pipe, and underground sewers that lead the sewage to the site of treatment.
How is it treated? Well the process is unknown by me but what I do know is that the sewage is broken down so that the water is extracted from the sewage then treated so theres isn’t any bacteria, infections and most importantly diseases in the water itself. This water is then treated for a lengthy period of time until it is completely clean and pumped back into our homes for re-use!
Sewage treatment in our society is very important, the demand for water is very high for everything on Earth to survive and live. Not only is that important, sewage control is a must in order for us to live in a healthy safe environment!
