Three Major Challenges Facing Wastewater Treatment

Kevin Lobo, FB Tech Review | Wednesday, July 07, 2021

Wastewater treatment plants often face the issue of a staffing shortage. Productive and skilled workers are crucial to treating wastewater properly.

Fremont, CA: Wastewater treatment systems are built to treat water and recycle it safely back into the environment. However, wastewater treatment plants also face certain challenges.

Here are three major challenges its face:

Environmental Footprint

Although wastewater treatment is built to filter water to make it eco-friendly, the facilities leave an environmental footprint when treating the water.

Wastewater treatment is designed to filter water to make it eco-friendly. But wastewater management facilities also leave an environmental footprint when they treat water. After all, the organic matter stripped from the water needs to go somewhere.

Green innovative technology is changing how water is treated to reduce the environmental footprint and limit its impacts. In the future, automation and innovation will help expand the eco-friendly technologies to make wastewater management greener.

Energy Consumption

One significant concern face by wastewater plants is energy consumption. It consumes between 3 percent to 15 percent of the nation’s electrical power yearly to filter wastewater.

But as the progress in discovering cleaner and greener methods to treating wastewater advances, incorporating these approaches and maintaining the water treatment systems in use will minimize the amount of energy used to treat wastewater.

Staffing Shortages

Wastewater treatment plants often face the issue of a staffing shortage. Productive and skilled workers are crucial to treating wastewater properly.

Automation can be a solution to this challenge. It can fill the vacancy of required works and decrease the stress of the current workers.
