What are the Cost Effective solutions for rural water and WWT?
Water and wastewater treatment systems in many rural water utilities are ageing or inadequate. At the same time, they're looking for ways to expand wastewater services to distant areas and deal with the issues of removing bacteria, pesticides, radioactive chemicals, and nutrients from agricultural runoff and leaking septic systems from water.
Even if smaller communities lack the financial resources to upgrade infrastructure or to build, operate, and maintain modern infrastructure, a variety of inventive solutions are now available to help them handle their difficulties.
Solutions that are not centralised overcome the obstacles of distance, climate, and terrain!
It's no surprise that decentralised systems, which comprise individual or cluster septic systems as well as advanced treatment systems, handle a large portion of the wastewater treatment load in rural areas.
Distance, climate, and challenging terrain might make connecting to centralised treatment plants difficult, if not impossible. Long pipelines are also eliminated by treating wastewater where it is generated. Pipelines typically get 75% of wastewater treatment plant CAPEX, but they also have a significant OPEX due to maintenance and the energy required for pumping. In general, the fewer pipes onehasthe better.
While decentralised treatment is not new to rural areas, technical advancements have earned their stripes by making high-quality decentralised treatment a reality.
The local community can profit from a safe, beneficial second use of its own water for agricultural irrigation and other applications when wastewater is treated to non-potable reuse standards where it is generated.
Improvements to Centralized Treatment
While decentralised wastewater treatment is common in rural areas, some rural towns are served by smaller central treatment plants. In that instance, they might be more interested in updating their current plant to improve nutrient removal, reduce energy consumption, and/or enhance capacity.
Instead of building a new plant, utilities can use MABR technology to upgrade the existing one without adding to the footprint or maintenance costs.
Brackish Water Desalination
Netsol modular systems offer energy-efficient reverse osmosis (RO) technology in containerized packaging for drinking water purification. Units are made for specific source waters, and they use a tailored train of filtration, disinfection, and polishing stages to purify practically any source water to drinking water standards, including brackish groundwater.
Netsol's treatment units are built within ordinary steel shipping containers, making them easy to transport and install anyplace a shipping container can go. The plants' permanent housing is made up of weatherized containers designed for 150 mph wind resistance, requiring minimum building. Furthermore, the machines are designed for non-specialized staff to monitor and operate remotely.
Contaminants from Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Radiological Contaminants
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and radioactive substances can pollute drinking water. For example, radon, a radioactive gas produced by radium decay, can be found naturally in groundwater.
The air stripper from Netsol handles VOCs and radioactive pollutants that are common in some areas. The high-efficiency technology can eliminate nearly all VOCs and other gases dissolved in water at a low cost.
Wastewater used to make drinking water contains water molecules as well as a wide range of other compounds. One of water's qualities is that it dissolves other substances quickly. Water falling to land during rain showers dissolves chemicals, particles, and gases contained in the air, such as oxygen. Contaminants found in the air dissolve in rainwater as well. When surface water flows over land, it dissolves a variety of substances including sand, organic materials, bacteria, and minerals.
