Wastewater is made up largely of organic carbon, either in solution or as
particulate matter. About 60% is in particulate form, consisting of proteins,
amino acids, peptides, carbohydrate, fats and fatty acids. Wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) prevent
potential waterborne disease outbreak. This is achieved by the active use of
mechanical process and biological process of the treatment plant to treat and
convert wastewater into clear effluent that meets specific standard. The
effluent water can be used for irrigation and domestic purposes, and the
thickened sludge as organic manure for farming. The inlet is the first stage of the treatment plant with an average dry weather inflow of 9,000 cubic meters per hour ( m3/
hr.). its composite is; 42 ton/day of Biochemical Oxygen
Demand (BOD) and 84 ton/day Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD). The aeration basin mammoth rotors function to
introduce oxygen inform of air (air contains 21% oxygen) into the mixed liquor
to enable respiration of the micro-organisms, thus facilitating feeding. The retention time of the mixed-liquor based on
design calculations by design engineer is thirty hours and four minutes (30.4
hrs.). The supernatant and some micro-organism of equal
or less density with the supernatant from the distribution well is passed
through ultraviolet rays to kill or render dormant any living and harmful organism.
Monitoring of the wastewater process, beginning from the up-stream through the down-stream, to ensure that all the unit operations are in good operational condition can easily be done from the mimic/annunciator panel.
