Any waste material that contains free liquids as determined by Method 9095 (Paint Filter Liquids Test) as described in "Test Methods for Evaluating Solid Waste, Physical/Chemical Methods,' EPA Publication SW-846 [Third Edition, ...
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.
Effluents Discharge of liquid waste or pollution. Effluents can contain bacteria, viruses, excessive nutrient loads and chemicals that are harmful to wildlife, humans and ecosystems.
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.
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.
indirect waste pipe A drain pipe used to convey liquid wastes that does not connect directly with the drainage system, but which discharges into the drainage system through an air break into a vented trap or a properly vented and trapped fixture, ...
Water Treatment Lagoon- An impound for liquid wastes designed to accomplish some degree of biochemical treatment.
Water Well- An excavation where the intended use is for location, acquisition, development, or artificial recharge of ground water.
Removal of hazardous solids from liquid waste to permit safe disposal; removal of particles from airborne emissions as in rain (e.g., acid precipitation).

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.
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.
Water Storage Pond: An impound for liquid wastes, so designated as to accomplish some degree of biochemical treatment of the wastes.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
