Wastewater treatment is important to prevent contamination of receiving waters. The treatment consists of applying known methods or technology to improve the quality of the wastewater. Usually the waste water is collected in a central or segregated location, usually this is the treatment plant, before the process of treatment begins. Treatment of wastewater involves physical, chemical and biological stages to remove these contaminants.
The method involves three stages:

Primary: Where the water is heavy solids in the waste water are allowed to settle at the bottom and oily substances on the top. Once these are removed the water is sent for secondary treatment.

Secondary: This process removes dissolved and suspended ...

Wastewater Treatment - Numerical Problem

Can you answer some more Q about the same problem and let me know the number of Credits you ask for please? And OK, next time I will post it in Engineering..
for the same problem:
d-The theoretical chamber lenth,ft
e-The design chamber lengh, ft, if the design length is 1.35 time the theoretical length and for ease of construction, is an increment of 1 in.
f-The head and the horizontal velocity for the averge flow, ft/Sec
g-The head and the horizontal velocity for the minimum flow if the minimum flow is one-half the average low, ft. ft/Sec.

Yes you may 4 Credits already in place.
And please let me know if you need more info from the TextBook trgarding the design of Grit Chamber. Thanks
