Understanding Residence Time
As economic development continues to expand, miles of additional sewer lines are installed to accommodate infrastructure growth.
New sewer lines are often oversized to compensate for these rapid changes in population.
Larger sewer lines lead to a greater residence time of wastewater flow which in turn leads to greater and more dangerous levels of hydrogen sulfide.
In addition to residence time, agitation, temperature, and microorganism and sulfate count greatly affect hydrogen sulfide levels.
Understanding Illegal Dumping
Illegal dumping of waste is a major (and expensive) issue facing wastewater treatment and collection system personnel today. This unauthorized dumping can lead to excessive nitrogen and bacteria levels at the treatment plant and comes in the form of:
- Fat and grease from the restaurant industry
- Blood and feces from animal processing facilities
- Meat-processing waste
- Industrial waste
- Fracking wastewater
