The aim of the project is to create chemical and technological conditions for the recycling and reuse of purified urban wastewater and where it is possible to replace so far usage of expensive drinking water for non-drinking purposes. The reused water will be utilized mainly for agricultural and other irrigation, irrigation for lawns of sports grounds (golf, football, etc.), urban greenery, service water for maintaining the cleanness of towns and municipalities. After measurements in the laboratory, proposed operations and their combinations are tested at the pilot scale in the form of a module, treating the effluent from the current water line in the Central Wastewater treatment plant in Prague.
The specific aim was a proposal of the composition of laboratory devices for testing of the technological arrangement of the water treatment line, treating the effluent from CWWTP to water suitable for irrigation, and realization of testing the particular variations of technological arrangements in pilot scale. The economic intention is to produce cheaper service water than potable water, often used for these activities. The non-economic aim is the conservation of natural sources – i.e. the raw groundwater and surface water resources used for potable water production.
