Tertiary Treatment of Wastewater

Meet effluent consent standards

To ensure that the effluent being discharged to rivers, lakes, wetlands and the sea meets consent standards, tertiary treatment of wastewater or effluent polishing provides a final wastewater treatment stage. It may be necessary to remove additional solids and/or carbonaceous biological oxygen demand (BOD) and further nitrification may be required.

WPL process experts can determine the required level of tertiary treatment. Effluents can also be disinfected to provide treated water suitable for re-use. P-removal packages - phosphorous removal using chemical dosing and drum filters can be applied where required.

WPL can carry out process design, on-site mechanical and electrical installation and commissioning of the tertiary wastewater treatment unit with service contracts tailored to specific site requirements.
