Aeration wastewater treatment tanks are subject to careful monitoring to ensure that nutrient removal is achieved safely and efficiently. Dissolved oxygen is a critical parameter in the aeration process, because oxygen levels in the tank impact the health of the biomass (microorganisms) breaking down the nutrients. To maintain the proper oxygen levels for biomass productivity, wastewater treatment operators utilize aeration pumps, which add oxygen to the tanks.
Traditionally, brine is manufactured at various concentrations by relying on a formula that relates the amount of water and salt added to the concentration of brine that will be produced. However, concentration accuracy and maintaining concentration accuracy have been cited as some of the primary challenges to brine manufacturing.

Cyanide waste treatment is critical, because cyanide wastes are toxic to living organisms. Specifically, cyanide may reduce or eliminate oxygen utilization in organisms, including human beings, making cyanide poisoning potentially fatal. Aquatic life, including microorganisms involved in natural water purification streams, is particularly susceptible to cyanide poisoning.
Swimming pools endure a lot of contamination, especially during the summer months. Bathers introduce contaminants like sweat, dirt, oils, and sunscreen into pool water. Other contaminants come from the surrounding environment such as leaves and insects. Contaminants reduce pool water quality. They can cause unpleasant odors and discoloration. Some contaminants like pathogenic bacteria can even cause illness and irritation. It is important to remove contaminants whenever possible through the use of chlorine and filtration.
