Wastewater Breakout Video



September 2nd

Wastewater is a broadly descriptive term generally used to mean any water that has been used by people and discharged into a sewer system. Sources of wastewater include domestic residences, commercial properties, industrial operations or agriculture.  Municipal wastewater contains a broad spectrum of contaminants resulting from the mixing of wastewaters from different sources. Pollutants within wastewater can include pathogens (e.g., bacteria, viruses, and microscopic parasites), organic particles, soluble organic material, inorganic particles, toxins (e.g., pesticides, poisons, and herbicides), pharmaceuticals, household wastes, and even dissolved gasses.  This breakout session includes several technologies and case studies that are focused on this segment of the industry.
