Without suitable treatment, the wastewater we produce every day would damage the water environment and create public health problems. This is far from a simple process but it is a very clever one.
TERRATANKS® used for Screening
Our liquid storage tanks form part of an important process of screening the wastewater, during necessary maintenance works. First, large objects that may cause a blockage are removed (things that really shouldn’t have been put down the drain, such as nappies, wet wipes, and even sometimes things like bricks, bottles and rags). Special equipment is then used to filter out grit, which often washes into the sewer with wastewater.
