Biological wastewater treatment — effective and environmentally sound
GRU has two wastewater treatment facilities:
Our process for treating wastewater or "reclaiming water" is a tried-and-true technological method that uses biological microorganisms that feed on the wastewater. These "bugs" actually do the work — we simply provide the right biological environment for them to thrive.
Then using state-of-the-art equipment, we harvest the organic microorganisms and convert them into a biosolids fertilizer for local agricultural use.
