Influent & Effluent flow describes the process of water flowing in and out of a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). Influent flow refers to the untreated or contaminated water flowing into the WWTP ready for processing. Whereas Effluent flow is when the water flows out of the plant into a body of water after it has been processed.
Flow measurement of both the influent and effluent flows is used to determine the processes and operations within treatment works, to adequately treat the influent, and meet compliance of discharge. Accurate measurement also allows for the monitoring of the load to the works, effective storm overspill monitoring, and the measurement as well as future expansion to the works if necessary.
Successful measurement of influent and effluent flow enables water companies across the globe to ensure that their works are running efficiently and to capacity. It also allows for the works to be monitored and for accurate prediction of future expansion and maintenance to the site.
