Manacor EDAR treatment plant
A Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) can be defined as the set of facilities whose purpose is to reduce the pollution of wastewater to acceptable limits for the receiving channel.
The Manacor WWTP is the result of the project to improve and expand the old water treatment plant that was drafted in 1996. The construction works of the current water treatment plant take place between 1998 and 1999, so the current sewage treatment plant has been in use for about 15 years.
The main function of an E.D.A.R is to collect wastewater from a population or industry, and after certain treatments and processes, it returns it to a receiving channel such as a river, reservoir, sea, etc.
Wastewater can be defined as the combination of liquid waste from residences, public institutions, industrial and commercial establishments, to which groundwater, surface and rainwater may eventually be added. The treatment processes that form part of the Manacor WWTP are:
- Arrival work and pre-treatment
- Secondary Treatment. Biological
- Secondary decantation
- Discharge into the receiving environment
- Recirculation and Purge of sludge
- Thickened mud
- Sludge dehydration
