Wastewater Treatment

With water scarcity fast becoming a global crisis, both government agencies and private industry are now looking to wastewater as a sustainable source of water for multiple uses. In addition, concern over contaminants and their impacts on humans and wildlife has generated new regulations and standards for the release of urban and industrial used water into the environment.
