Applications for Wastewater

The right choice of technology is one of the most important parts in the design process of a wastewater treatment plant. Enaqua offers solutions from low-quality effluents such as combined sewer overflow (CSO) and lagoons over secondary effluents up to filtered effluents. Enaqua also offers cost-effective solutions for low UV transmissive wastewaters and sequencing batch reactors (SBR) with up to 24 on/off cycles per day.

 

UV – The preferred disinfection method in municipal wastewater

  • UV is the preferred disinfection method for municipal wastewater applications compared to conventional chlorination. See technology comparison under UV FAQ
  • Today more than 20% of wastewater treatment plants in the United States are already using UV as their preferred disinfection technology and this percentage is rapidly increasing.
