  • The Conventional/Centralized Treatment MethodHere are a few points on what we need to know about this wastewater treatment method:

  • The Conventional/Centralized Treatment Method01 Central civic or municipalities usually use this method of wastewater treatment.

  • The Conventional/Centralized Treatment Method02 The treated water is just drained into nearby oceans, rivers, lakes, and other such bodies of water.

  • The Conventional/Centralized Treatment Method03 Since it is an underground system, most if not all the people in the community are unaware of all the wastewater they are generating.

  • The Problems of Conventional/Centralized Treatment MethodThe notion of the negative impacts of this wastewater treatment was only strengthened when the following instances started happening:

  • The Problems of Conventional/Centralized Treatment MethodCities and towns are bursting at the seam due to the volume of sewage being generated and increasing in geometric progression.

  • The Problems of Conventional/Centralized Treatment MethodMany industries and micro-industries often have wastewater that is more difficult to treat compared to ordinary sewage.

  • The Problems of Conventional/Centralized Treatment Method03 There is an increasing awareness about the impact of all forms of pollution on the current and future generation of all living things on this planet.

  • The Problems of Conventional/Centralized Treatment MethodPlants make large surrounding areas of land unlivable due to the odor and the breeding of insects like mosquitoes in the vicinity, usually around the pumping stations.

  • The Problems of Conventional/Centralized Treatment MethodMunicipalities are now unable to find enough overground and underground space to increase the size of the treatment plant to accommodate the increase in sewage water volume.

  • The Problems of Conventional/Centralized Treatment MethodMore and more people are starting to have the perception of the unjust work conditions of sanitation workers, as these said work conditions oftenhave them working in filth.

  • The Problems of Conventional/Centralized Treatment MethodThe increase of cost on the installation of sewerage systems as well as operating and maintenance has made it hard for municipalities to manage financially.

  • The Problems of Conventional/Centralized Treatment MethodSewage blockages cause a significantly bad odor in the whole city or town, and the only way to get rid of the odor is to clear the blockage.

  • The Problems of Conventional/Centralized Treatment MethodThere are also increasing costs in the aspects of Conventional/Centralized Wastewater Treatment.

  • The Problems of Conventional/Centralized Treatment MethodAs water becomes an increasingly scarce resource, dumping well-treated water in lakes, rivers or other bodies of water has become a criminal act.

  • Considering the Decentralized STP OptionThere are quite a number of advantages communities can reap from Decentralized STPs, and these advantages include the following:

  • Considering the Decentralized STP OptionWith the right technology and design, this approach can result in the reduction or even elimination of underground sewerage systems.

  • Considering the Decentralized STP OptionThe plants are scalable, meaning we can keep building plants based on the growing needs of the community at any given time.

  • Considering the Decentralized STP OptionDecentralized STPs are known to have much lower operating and maintenance costs.

  • Decentralized STPs are a fairly new trend that many have not caught onto yet. However, it is clear that this method can make great contributions to the conservation of water and in better quality treated wastewater. www.bgwaterfilter.com
