The objective of sewage treatment is to produce a disposable effluent without causing harm to the surrounding environment, and prevent pollution. Sewage treatment is the process of removing contaminants from wastewater and household sewage, both runoff (effluents), domestic, commercial and institutional.
It includes physical, chemical, and biological processes to remove physical, chemical and biological contaminants. Its objective is to produce an environmentally safe fluid waste stream (or treated effluent) and a solid waste (or treated sludge) suitable for disposal or reuse (usually as farm fertilizer). Using advanced technology it is now possible to re-use sewage effluent for drinking water, although Singapore is the only country to implement such technology on a production scale in its production of NEWater. History Water Supply, Sanitation, and Hygiene Promotion - Disease Control Priorities in Developing Countries - NCBI Bookshelf. What constitutes a perfectly satisfactory water supply to some consumers leaves others, even in developing countries, considering themselves unserved.
In much of rural Africa, a hand pump 500 meters from the household is a luxury, but most residents in urban Latin America would not consider themselves served by a water supply unless they had a house connection. In Asia, urban planners would consider a community served if there were sufficient standposts on the street corner; however, if the water only flows for a few hours per week, producing lengthy nighttime queues, the residents may regard this situation as a lack of service and opt to buy water expensively from itinerant vendors. As these examples illustrate, water supply is not a single, well-defined intervention, such as immunization, but can be provided at various levels of service with varying benefits and differing costs.

Chapter 2 - Health risks associated with wastewater use. Types of pathogens present in wastewater Pathogens that reach the field or crop Pathogen survival under agricultural field conditions Relative health risk from wastewater use Agronomic conditions that minimize disease spread when wastewater is used for irrigation Guidelines for public health protection during wastewater use There are agronomic and economic benefits of wastewater use in agriculture.
Irrigation with wastewater can increase the available water supply or release better quality supplies for alternative uses. In addition to these direct economic benefits that conserve natural resources, the fertilizer value of many wastewaters is important.
