Wastewater is any water that has already been used. This includes water from home kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms, as well as water from businesses in New Zealand. This water might carry human waste, soaps, food scraps, and chemicals. It also includes storm water. It’s easy to think of this water as being clean, but as it washes across roads, driveways, and land, the rain water carries pollutants with it such as oil, chemicals, and fertilizers that we use in our day to day life and probably don’t give a second thought.
Nature can deal with a small amount of these pollutants and break it down, but when it’s overwhelmed, we have issues with pollution seeping into NZ’s natural bodies of water like ponds, lakes, streams, rivers, and ultimately the ocean. Wastewater treatment in New Zealand helps protect our waterways. During treatment, the goal is to remove the solids from the water before we release the water back to mother nature. Treatment can’t remove all waste, but the aim is to eliminate as much as possible so nature can hopefully clean up the rest.
Wastewater treatment is a necessity if we want to keep our New Zealand environment and our own bodies clean and healthy. If we don’t treat wastewater, the water released back to mother nature carries the pollutants into our waterways. We work and live near these bodies of water, and spend lots of time in and on the bodies of water for recreation and fishing.
Pollutants contaminate fish and other wildlife and upset their ecological system. When this imbalance occurs, the survival of many species of wildlife is in danger. The danger is evident to the people of NZ as well. The water would be filled with food, sewage, and pharmaceutical waste that would ultimately end up back in the waterways we frequent and into our water supply. Also, the beaches and waterways we spend time on could end up closed as viruses and bacteria invade. Without treatment, metals such as mercury, lead, and arsenic ends up having an adverse impact on wildlife.
