To be effective, the biota require both oxygen and food to live.
The bacteria and protozoa consume biodegradable soluble organic contaminants e. Secondary treatment systems are classified as fixed-film or suspended-growth systems. Fixed-film or attached growth systems include trickling filters , constructed wetlands , bio-towers, and rotating biological contactors , where the biomass grows on media and the sewage passes over its surface.
However, fixed-film systems are more able to cope with drastic changes in the amount of biological material and can provide higher removal rates for organic material and suspended solids than suspended growth systems.
Tertiary treatment[ edit ] The purpose of tertiary treatment is to provide a final treatment stage to further improve the effluent quality before it is discharged to the receiving environment sea, river, lake, wet lands, ground, etc. More than one tertiary treatment process may be used at any treatment plant. If disinfection is practised, it is always the final process. It is also called "effluent polishing. These lagoons are highly aerobic and colonization by native macrophytes , especially reeds, is often encouraged.
Small filter-feeding invertebrates such as Daphnia and species of Rotifera greatly assist in treatment by removing fine particulates. Biological nutrient removal[ edit ] Biological nutrient removal BNR is regarded by some as a type of secondary treatment process,  and by others as a tertiary or "advanced" treatment process. Wastewater may contain high levels of the nutrients nitrogen and phosphorus. Excessive release to the environment can lead to a buildup of nutrients, called eutrophication , which can in turn encourage the overgrowth of weeds, algae , and cyanobacteria blue-green algae.
This may cause an algal bloom , a rapid growth in the population of algae. The algae numbers are unsustainable and eventually most of them die. The decomposition of the algae by bacteria uses up so much of the oxygen in the water that most or all of the animals die, which creates more organic matter for the bacteria to decompose. In addition to causing deoxygenation, some algal species produce toxins that contaminate drinking water supplies. Different treatment processes are required to remove nitrogen and phosphorus.
Nitrogen removal[ edit ] Nitrogen is removed through the biological oxidation of nitrogen from ammonia to nitrate nitrification , followed by denitrification , the reduction of nitrate to nitrogen gas.
Nitrogen gas is released to the atmosphere and thus removed from the water. Nitrification itself is a two-step aerobic process, each step facilitated by a different type of bacteria. Denitrification requires anoxic conditions to encourage the appropriate biological communities to form. It is facilitated by a wide diversity of bacteria. Sand filters, lagooning and reed beds can all be used to reduce nitrogen, but the activated sludge process if designed well can do the job the most easily.
This can be, depending on the waste water, organic matter from feces , sulfide , or an added donor like methanol. The sludge in the anoxic tanks denitrification tanks must be mixed well mixture of recirculated mixed liquor, return activated sludge [RAS], and raw influent e. Sometimes the conversion of toxic ammonia to nitrate alone is referred to as tertiary treatment. Over time, different treatment configurations have evolved as denitrification has become more sophisticated.
An initial scheme, the Ludzack—Ettinger Process, placed an anoxic treatment zone before the aeration tank and clarifier, using the return activated sludge RAS from the clarifier as a nitrate source.
Influent wastewater either raw or as effluent from primary clarification serves as the electron source for the facultative bacteria to metabolize carbon, using the inorganic nitrate as a source of oxygen instead of dissolved molecular oxygen. This denitrification scheme was naturally limited to the amount of soluble nitrate present in the RAS.
Nitrate reduction was limited because RAS rate is limited by the performance of the clarifier. The "Modified Ludzak—Ettinger Process" MLE is an improvement on the original concept, for it recycles mixed liquor from the discharge end of the aeration tank to the head of the anoxic tank to provide a consistent source of soluble nitrate for the facultative bacteria.
In this instance, raw wastewater continues to provide the electron source, and sub-surface mixing maintains the bacteria in contact with both electron source and soluble nitrate in the absence of dissolved oxygen. Many sewage treatment plants use centrifugal pumps to transfer the nitrified mixed liquor from the aeration zone to the anoxic zone for denitrification.
At times, the raw or primary effluent wastewater must be carbon-supplemented by the addition of methanol, acetate, or simple food waste molasses, whey, plant starch to improve the treatment efficiency. These carbon additions should be accounted for in the design of a treatment facility's organic loading. Use of an anaerobic tank following the initial anoxic process allows for luxury uptake of phosphorus by bacteria, thereby biologically reducing orthophosphate ion in the treated wastewater.
Even newer improvements, such as Anammox Process, interrupt the formation of nitrate at the nitrite stage of nitrification, shunting nitrite-rich mixed liquor activated sludge to treatment where nitrite is then converted to molecular nitrogen gas, saving energy, alkalinity, and secondary carbon sourcing.
Phosphorus removal is important as it is a limiting nutrient for algae growth in many fresh water systems. For a description of the negative effects of algae, see Nutrient removal.
It is also particularly important for water reuse systems where high phosphorus concentrations may lead to fouling of downstream equipment such as reverse osmosis. Phosphorus can be removed biologically in a process called enhanced biological phosphorus removal. In this process, specific bacteria, called polyphosphate-accumulating organisms PAOs , are selectively enriched and accumulate large quantities of phosphorus within their cells up to 20 percent of their mass.
When the biomass enriched in these bacteria is separated from the treated water, these biosolids have a high fertilizer value. Phosphorus removal can also be achieved by chemical precipitation , usually with salts of iron e.
Chemical phosphorus removal requires significantly smaller equipment footprint than biological removal, is easier to operate and is often more reliable than biological phosphorus removal. Some systems use both biological phosphorus removal and chemical phosphorus removal. The chemical phosphorus removal in those systems may be used as a backup system, for use when the biological phosphorus removal is not removing enough phosphorus, or may be used continuously.
In either case, using both biological and chemical phosphorus removal has the advantage of not increasing sludge production as much as chemical phosphorus removal on its own, with the disadvantage of the increased initial cost associated with installing two different systems. Once removed, phosphorus, in the form of a phosphate-rich sewage sludge , may be dumped in a landfill or used as fertilizer.
In the latter case, the treated sewage sludge is also sometimes referred to as biosolids. Further information: Advanced oxidation process The purpose of disinfection in the treatment of waste water is to substantially reduce the number of microorganisms in the water to be discharged back into the environment for the later use of drinking, bathing, irrigation, etc.
The effectiveness of disinfection depends on the quality of the water being treated e. Cloudy water will be treated less successfully, since solid matter can shield organisms, especially from ultraviolet light or if contact times are low.
Generally, short contact times, low doses and high flows all militate against effective disinfection. Common methods of disinfection include ozone , chlorine , ultraviolet light , or sodium hypochlorite.
After multiple steps of disinfection, the treated water is ready to be released back into the water cycle by means of the nearest body of water or agriculture. Afterwards, the water can be transferred to reserves for everyday human uses.
Chlorination remains the most common form of waste water disinfection in North America due to its low cost and long-term history of effectiveness. One disadvantage is that chlorination of residual organic material can generate chlorinated-organic compounds that may be carcinogenic or harmful to the environment.
Residual chlorine or chloramines may also be capable of chlorinating organic material in the natural aquatic environment. Further, because residual chlorine is toxic to aquatic species, the treated effluent must also be chemically dechlorinated, adding to the complexity and cost of treatment. Ultraviolet UV light can be used instead of chlorine, iodine, or other chemicals. Because no chemicals are used, the treated water has no adverse effect on organisms that later consume it, as may be the case with other methods.
UV radiation causes damage to the genetic structure of bacteria, viruses , and other pathogens , making them incapable of reproduction.
The key disadvantages of UV disinfection are the need for frequent lamp maintenance and replacement and the need for a highly treated effluent to ensure that the target microorganisms are not shielded from the UV radiation i.
In the United Kingdom, UV light is becoming the most common means of disinfection because of the concerns about the impacts of chlorine in chlorinating residual organics in the wastewater and in chlorinating organics in the receiving water. Some sewage treatment systems in Canada and the US also use UV light for their effluent water disinfection.
Ozone is very unstable and reactive and oxidizes most organic material it comes in contact with, thereby destroying many pathogenic microorganisms.
Ozone is considered to be safer than chlorine because, unlike chlorine which has to be stored on site highly poisonous in the event of an accidental release , ozone is generated on-site as needed from the oxygen in the ambient air. Ozonation also produces fewer disinfection by-products than chlorination. A disadvantage of ozone disinfection is the high cost of the ozone generation equipment and the requirements for special operators.
