For better or worse, if you change what you are doing in your processing facility, it is inevitable that you will see changes occurring in your wastewater treatment plant operation
Like humans, wastewater treatment plants get used to things, they get conditioned, and they don’t like change. So, when the goal posts are moved, they become disturbed and don’t function well. They get upset. “An upset wastewater treatment plant” is a commonly used expression in industry because it is so common. Operators of industrial wastewater treatment plants need to be savvy. They need to know and anticipate changes that occur in wastewater characteristics, and be able to implement procedures to offset the changes and ensure that the wastewater treatment process and performance is maintained.
Well-designed industrial wastewater treatment plants take into account the fact that wastewater characteristics are variable and are designed where possible to realign themselves without operator intervention. However, it is not always feasible to automate a corrective response.
Careful monitoring and manual input are necessary to maintain the performance of an industrial wastewater treatment plant along with operational data logging that can enable longer term improvements to be made to maintain the performance and to optimise ongoing costs.
