Application Guide: Water Chemistries - Wastewater

Many people think of “sewage” when thinking of wastewater. While this is partially correct, wastewater is also made up of other components such as water from sinks, showers, washing machines, oils and other organics, food scraps, and chemicals. Storm water runoff also falls under this category. All together, billions of gallons of wastewater are generated daily and must be appropriately treated before it is released back into the environment. By testing for the appropriate parameters, you ensure a more efficient treatment process in addition to a cleaner environment.
