Wastewater treatment is a major element of water pollution control. Learn more about the types of wastewater treatment systems, the technologies used, and the history of treating ://   Highlights Six scenarios were developed capturing regional priorities in India.

Appropriate wastewater treatment alternatives were identified for each scenario. A scenario-based, multiple-attribute decision-making approach was developed. A utility-based compensatory approach, TOPSIS, was identified suitable for ranking.

Growing pressure on water resources has led to the search for alternatives to conventional wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Centralized wastewater treatment systems provide a single treatment scheme but are not especially adequate for water reuse as large flows of reclaimed water need to be efficiently ://.

per capita usage from public water supply systems in the United States was gallons ( liters) per day (Solley et al., ). In arid areas, municipal wastewater production is typically less than the amount withdrawn for water supply, but in some areas, wastewater flow exceeds the water supply because of infiltration and inflow (e.g.

stormwater) into wastewater collection Wastewater can have several meanings, depending on the industry or application. Blowdown from cooling towers is considered wastewater, leachate recovery water in greenhouses contaminated with pathogens can be considered wastewater, food processing water, and water processed in sewage plants is very definitively considered wastewater.

Finding new methods to disinfect Innovative approaches to municipal services, such as small-scale wastewater treatment systems, can offer new alternatives in this field.

Cooperation with nearby governing bodies and rural service providers, as applicable, is essential to the implementation of such innovative technology for sustainable rural ://
