Have you pondered over the idea that how harmful it could be for our environment when tons of waste water is being directly dumped into the rivers, streams and eventually in oceans? Not only it’s damaging the marine environment, but it’s also doing little to preserve water when shortage of water is the latest threat the world is facing right now.
However, the good part is people have started to realize the importance of wastewater management. Wastewater management is the most sustainable short-term and long-term solution to shortage of water. Almost all of the water suppliers in the UK have started using wastewater management. If you’re a Severn Trent customer, you can directly call them at Severn Trent Contact Number to know more about this procedure.
Apart from producing clean and reusable water, wastewater management has a lot of other benefits associated with it:
The major benefit of this procedure is to reduce the effects of harmful pollutants released in the used water. It controls and nullifies the amount of pollutants in the water as well as reduces the health risks associated with the environmental pollution. Furthermore, it also helps the country to reduce its overall budget on environment-friendly projects.
Production of Energy:
It’s a well-known fact that the waste collected during the treatment procedure contains a large amount of recyclable and bio-degradable materials. This waste material when further treated through anaerobic process, eventually produce methane gas which can be burned to generate electricity. The energy generated through this procedure can be used to produce electricity in the waste water plants to make them self-sustainable and the extra energy (if there is left any) can be transferred to the electricity grid for the consumers.
Production of Fertilizers:
The remaining biodegradable materials left with the procedure is then dried and turned into natural fertilizers. This natural fertilizer is then used in the agriculture industry to increase crop yields which helps in decreasing the use the chemical fertilizers that pollute the environment and the ecosystem.
In the end, it’s safe to say that the combination of these benefits and the recycled water produced by the wastewater treatment is a sustainable and long-term solution to the problem of water crisis the world is facing currently and which is going to increase with an increase in the population.
