Liquid wastes such as sewage and liquid waste from industries.
A vehicle that is driven by an electric motor or battery and is generally less noisy and less polluting than common combustion engine vehicles.
Liquid wastes, originating from a community. They may have been composed of domestic wastewaters or industrial discharges.
Semi liquid residue that remains from the treatment of municipal water and wastewater.
A pond for liquid wastes designed to accomplish some degree of biochemical treatment.
An excavation where the intended use is for location, acquisition, development, or artificial recharge of ground water.
greywater - Liquid wastes from showers, baths, sinks, kitchens and domestic washing facilities; does not include toilet wastes.
groundwater - The supply of fresh water found beneath the earth's surface (usually in aquifers) that is often used for supplying wells and springs.
Techniques developed for the exploration of oil and gas reservoirs, natural gas storage sites and liquid waste disposal sites are suitable for characterizing geological storage sites for CO2.
In direct potable reuse, the liquid waste or sewage of a wastewater treatment plant is sent directly into the intake of a drinking-water treatment and distribution plant.
Liquid waste or effluent flows out of the tank and is evenly distributed into the soil through the piping system. The soil below the drainfield provides the final treatment and disposal of a septic tank effluent.
Water Storage Pond: An impound for liquid wastes designed to accomplish some degree of biochemical treatment.
Water Supplier: One who owns or operates a public water system.
Water Supply System: The collection, treatment, storage, and distribution of potable water from source to consumer.
These toilets can help save water by using less for liquid waste flushes.
Fix leaks. Toilet leaks can cost you up to 200 gallons of water each day, the same amount it would take to wash 10 loads of clothes in an Energy Star-rated washing machine.
water storage pond An impound for liquid wastes, so designed as to either accomplish some degree of biochemical treatment of the wastes or to reduce peak flow rates through equalization.
water supplier A person who owns or operates a public water system.
Effluent: The sewage or industrial liquid waste that is released into natural water by sewage treatment plants, industry, or septic tanks.
Ejector: A device used to inject a chemical solution into wastewater during water treatment.
A term used to describe sludge that contains microorganisms that break down organic contaminants (e.g., benzene) in liquid waste streams to simpler substances such as water and carbon dioxide.
Commonly used system that relies on high pressure to prepare liquid wastes for incineration by breaking them up into tiny droplets to allow easier combustion.

Recycling - A series of processes that include collection, separation, and processing by which products and raw materials are recovered and reused in lieu of disposal as solid or liquid wastes. Commonly recycled items include cans and bottles, paper and industrial solvents.
Liquid Injection Incinerator: Commonly used system that relies on high pressure to prepare liquid wastes for incineration by breaking them up into tiny droplets to allow easier combustion.
The release of any waste into the environment from a point source. Usually refers to the release of a liquid waste into a body of water through an outlet such as a pipe, but also refers to air emissions. ...
dumping: The long-term disposal of disused material, for example, by placing solid waste into a sanitary landfill, or by discarding liquid waste into a waterbody.
The rate at which a fluid escapes from a unit area. Such measurements are made of liquid waste, effluent, and surface water movement.
A well having sufficient artesian pressure head to discharge water above the land surface.
Precipitation: Removal of hazardous solids from liquid waste to permit safe disposal; removal of particles from airborne emissions as in rain (e.g., acid precipitation).
Precipitator: Pollution control device that collects particles from an air stream.
Recycling Process by which materials that would otherwise become solid or liquid waste are collected, separated or processed and returned to the economic mainstream to be reused in the form of raw materials or finished goods.
