Technologies of Domestic Wastewater Treatment and Reuse : Options of Application in Developing Countries

  title={Technologies of Domestic Wastewater Treatment and Reuse : Options of Application in Developing Countries},
  author={Asmaa N. Mohammed and M. A. Elbably},
In developing countries, a small proportion of the wastewater produced by sewer communities is treated. The accumulations of human and animal bio-waste are constant and unmanaged wastewater directly contributes to the contamination of locally available fresh water supplies. Additionally, the cumulative results of unmanaged wastewater can have broad degenerative effects on both public and ecosystem health. Domestic wastewater treatment is aimed to reduce the numbers of excreted pathogens to low… Expand
