How is treated wastewater reused in hospitals?
In hospitals, there are two types of water: that which comes into touch with patients and that which does not. Treated wastewater in hospitals can be repurposed in areas, where it won't come into contact with people or patients.
Now, let’s look at the reuse of treated wastewater in hospitals.
Purpose of reusing treated hospital wastewater
All across the world, hospital treated wastewater is purposefully reused for additional non-potable uses, such as toilet flushing and landscape irrigation, and in certain areas, wastewater is even being treated to allow potable reuse.
Most wastewater treatment facilities (WWTPs) in hospitals use some combination of settling and biological treatment, frequently with disinfection and RO plants as the last step.
Wastewater treatment in hospitals
Wastewater treatment is the process of turning contaminated water into something usable. Because, the hospital uses techniques like MBBR/FAB, the treated polluted water can be used for irrigation, horticulture, floriculture, gardening, and floor washing.
It is also used for a variety of hospital activities like operations, wound cleaning, childbirth, floor washing, hospital laundry waste, flushing of human waste from ill patients, etc.
These treated waters are rich in nutrients that are also beneficial to plant development. You may recycle water this way and store raw water supplies for later use.
Treated hospital wastewater is best for agriculture!
Irrigation using hospital wastewater is a viable solution. Compared to other alternative sources of irrigation water, hospital wastewater has a number of advantages for farmers. It is a dependable source of water, extending the growing season and the range of crops that may be cultivated.
Moreover, wastewater typically has a higher nutrient load than groundwater, depending on the level of treatment. Crops can absorb these minerals, increasing crop yields and reducing the need for chemical fertilizers.
What can the government and youth do to reuse hospital wastewater that has been treated?
It is advised that both public and private awareness of the following topics:
1)To raise awareness about the responsible utilization of hospital wastewater for a sustainable future.
2)To push hospital authorities (both public and private) to install wastewater treatment plants, as a legal requirement.
3)To call the state pollution control board's attention to the need for the stringent implementation, of wastewater treatment facilities in every hospital, in order to protect the environment from pollution and save water resources.
At hospitals, there is a lot of room for water savings, but it's critical that these savings are made carefully to avoid compromising patient safety. Reclaimed water shouldn't be used unless there is no risk to the health of the patients, who frequently have weakened immune systems.
After treatment, hospital wastewater can be used as a valuable water source for horticulture and floriculture gardening.
