Water and Wastewater Issues in Food Processing Facilities
Water and wastewater are common inputs and outputs of most food processing facilities. Even in a state where water is abundant, water use can add up to significant costs for a facility. Therefore, conserving water and reducing the amount of BOD, TSS, Phosphorus and other materials in your wastewater can not only save you money, but can also reduce your facility's environmental impact.
This page provides an overview of how food manufacturers use water and links to resources for managing wastewater from specific food manufacturing processes.
