Efficient Wastewater Management with TERRATANK®

Wastewater management is a critical aspect of modern industrial and commercial operations.
Proper handling, storage, and treatment of wastewater are essential to protect the environment, comply with regulations, and maintain sustainable operations. Liquid storage tanks play a crucial role in efficient wastewater and stormwater management, providing a reliable solution for storing and handling wastewater.
In this blog, we will explore the importance of efficient wastewater management and how liquid storagetanks can be utilised in wastewater and stormwater management processes

Why is Efficient Wastewater Management important?

Wastewater generated from industrial and commercial operations contains various contaminants,including chemicals, solids, and biological matter, that can be harmful to the environment and human health if not properly managed. Discharging untreated wastewater into rivers, lakes, or oceans can pollute water bodies, harm aquatic life, and cause ecological imbalances. It can also result in hefty fines and penalties for non-compliance with environmental regulations. Efficient wastewater management is crucial to prevent such environmental and regulatory risks and ensure sustainable operations.

Liquid Storage Tanks in Wastewater Management

Liquid storage tanks are an integral part of wastewater management systems, providing a safe and efficient solution for storing and handling wastewater. Here are some ways in which liquid storage tanks can be utilised in wastewater management processes:

  1. Wastewater Storage: Liquid storage tanks are used to store wastewater generated from industrial and commercial processes. These tanks are designed to withstand the corrosive nature of wastewater and prevent leaks or spills, ensuring safe storage. They can be made from different materials, such as steel, polyethylene, or fiberglass, depending on the type of wastewater and storage requirements.Liquid storage tanks come in various sizes and configurations to accommodate different volumes of wastewater (typical sizes can be see here: https://www.terratank.co.uk/terra-tank-range/).
  2. Wastewater Treatment: Liquid storage tanks can be used as part of wastewater treatment processes.Wastewater stored in these tanks can undergo various treatment methods, such as sedimentation, chemical treatment, biological treatment, and filtration, to remove contaminants before discharge or reuse. Liquid storage tanks can also be used for storing treated wastewater before it is released into the environment or reused for irrigation or other non-potable purposes.
  3. Emergency Storage: Liquid storage tanks can be used for emergency storage of wastewater during unforeseen situations such as equipment breakdowns, power outages, or extreme weather events. Having liquid storage tanks as a backup allows for bulk storage of wastewater, preventing spill or discharges that may harm the environment or violate regulations.

Benefits of Using Liquid Storage Tanks in Wastewater Management

Using liquid storage tanks in wastewater management processes offers several benefits, including:

  1. Environmental Protection: Liquid storage tanks provide a secure and reliable solution for storing wastewater, preventing leaks or spills that can harm the environment and water bodies. They help in complying with environmental regulations, reducing the risk of fines or penalties for non-compliance.
  2. Efficient Wastewater Treatment: Liquid storage tanks allow for proper storage of wastewater, facilitating efficient treatment processes. They provide a controlled environment for treating wastewate and can be designed with features such as mixers or aeration systems to enhance treatment efficiency.
  3. Flexibility: Liquid storage tanks come in various sizes, configurations and can be linked together, offering flexibility in designing wastewater management systems to suit specific needs. They can be customised to accommodate different volumes of wastewater, site constraints, and treatment requirements.
  4. Cost-effective: Liquid storage tanks are a cost-effective solution for wastewater management. They are durable, require minimal maintenance, and can be reused for multiple applications. They can also be easily transported and deployed by crane-lift or roll off/on delivery.
With tanks available from 32,000 to 70,000 litres, customers have the flexibility to choose the capacity that best meets their needs. Our tanks can also be linked together to increase storage capacity, providing a scalable solution.
