Environment impact assessment for Al-Rustumiya wastewater treatment plant

Environment impact assessment for Al-Rustumiya wastewater treatment plant The discharge standard of wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) of both national and local becomes more strict. Therefore, the wastewater treatment process has become a major problem. Al-Rustumiya WWTP in Baghdad city needs to have an environmental impact assessment study to know the potential impacts on environment. The laboratory work continued from 2019 to February 2020. Many samples were collected from wastewater, and from air, and soil surrounding wastewater basins, for the examination of many variables parameters: pH, BOD, COD, TSS, and Cl from wastewater; H2S, CO, and SO2 from the air, and pH, TDS, OM, Gypsum, SO4, and Cl from the soil. From results the BOD, COD, and TSS were 217.3 ± 17.9, 374.7 ± 65.4, and 199.9 ± 10.03 mg/L, respectively, within Iraqi standard specification. The results of BOD5/COD ratio of 0.5 for raw water, 0.4 to effluent, indicate that wastewater needed more treatment. For air results, the H2S in the screening area was 50.7 ± 13.8 ppm higher than determinants, which effects on human health due to toxicity. In soil, the TSS reached to 298 g/kg. This affects on plants growth, due to incomplete treatment sludge cake that is used as fertilizer. The SWOT analysis showed that the internal elements (strengths and weaknesses) were unequal where the strengths points were much greater than those of the weakness, while the external elements revealed that the opportunities were greater than the threats. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Innovative Infrastructure Solutions Springer Journals

Abstract

The discharge standard of wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) of both national and local becomes more strict. Therefore, the wastewater treatment process has become a major problem. Al-Rustumiya WWTP in Baghdad city needs to have an environmental impact assessment study to know the potential impacts on environment. The laboratory work continued from 2019 to February 2020. Many samples were collected from wastewater, and from air, and soil surrounding wastewater basins, for the examination of many variables parameters: pH, BOD, COD, TSS, and Cl from wastewater; H2S, CO, and SO2 from the air, and pH, TDS, OM, Gypsum, SO4, and Cl from the soil. From results the BOD, COD, and TSS were 217.3 ± 17.9, 374.7 ± 65.4, and 199.9 ± 10.03 mg/L, respectively, within Iraqi standard specification. The results of BOD5/COD ratio of 0.5 for raw water, 0.4 to effluent, indicate that wastewater needed more treatment. For air results, the H2S in the screening area was 50.7 ± 13.8 ppm higher than determinants, which effects on human health due to toxicity. In soil, the TSS reached to 298 g/kg. This affects on plants growth, due to incomplete treatment sludge cake that is used as fertilizer. The SWOT analysis showed that the internal elements (strengths and weaknesses) were unequal where the strengths points were much greater than those of the weakness, while the external elements revealed that the opportunities were greater than the threats.
