Industrial wastewater characteristics vary with each type of discharge. Food processing ,dairy operations and meatpacking all have wastes that are very high in BOD, sometimes over 1000 mg/L. This BOD is high in dissolved sugars, fats, and proteins and low in suspended material. It will dramatically increase the loading on the secondary treatment processes. Some food process wastes can also have a high pH, And industrial discharge is considered to be a “Significant Industrial User” or SIU

Types of industrial waste water:

– Slaughter house
– Tanneries
– Carwash

Pumping stations:

Are facilities including pumps and equipment for pumping fluids from one place to another. They are used for a variety of infrastructure systems, such as the supply of water to canals, the drainage of low-lying land, and the removal of sewage to processing sites.

A pumping station pumps sewage under pressure from one point to another through a rising main. A rising main is a pipe that contains foul sewage and/or surface water runoff, linking a pumping station to the main sewerage system. The sewage then usually runs by gravity to the nearest sewage treatment works.
