What is Wastewater?

Wastewater in its simplest terms:

Is water that has been contaminated directly or indirectly by human civilization. Sewage is a type of wastewater, but not all wastewater is sewage. Other types of wastewater can be the byproduct of food processing plants, cattle ranches or industrial facilities. Wastewater contains contaminates such as feces, toilet paper, contaminates from road runoff and pavement as well as roofs and soil.

No matter how well intended a human civilization may be, mankind always has an impact on his surroundings. Stemming  from  root causes, such as the byproducts of animals that mankind raises as food sources (such as ranches and chicken farms), wastewater can contaminate the water supply with bacteria, viruses, toxic substances, inorganic and organic products generated and discarded by the needs of man to raise a stronger better crop or herd to feed our ever growing population.

That’s why it’s so very important that we the people that are here now preserve this planet for the next generation. We must take every precaution to ensure that the water supply remain as clean and stable as possible.  More than just our duty as good citizens, its good business practice, government mandates require water be cleaned to a certain level and failing to do so can cost a company a lot of money.
