Sewage Treatment Plant Effluent Monitor

Increasingly stringent discharge standards require the removal of pollutants to very low levels, while environmental and financial sustainability goals require minimising energy and resource consumption. Utilities require technology that helps them improve process efficiency, whilst maintaining or reducing operation and maintenance (O&M) costs. 

Turbidity can be used as a control parameter for the effluent, to ensure the treatment is optimised. Turbidity is a measure of the degree to which the water loses its transparency due to the presence of suspended particulates. The more total suspended solids in the water, the murkier it seems and the higher the turbidity. Turbidity is considered as a good measure of the quality of water. 

There is no current regulation or requirement for monitoring your sewage treatment effluent onboard vessels, but it is Rivertrace’s opinion that effective and stringent onboard sewage treatment is seen as good practice.
