The urban wastewater refining plant of Fasano-Forcatella (BR), better known as "Lago Forcatella", operates downstream of biological treatments, on a discharge otherwise intended for discharge into the sea in Table 1 (Legislative Decree 152/2006).
The operation of the plant consists in intercepting the waste water of the municipal purifier by means of a hydraulic disconnection and apply more "pushed" treatments to obtain water that can be reused in agriculture. In this way, therefore, in normal operating conditions, the discharge into the sea is zero.
These waters present a considerable variability, depending roughly on the daily contributions: there is an online station that acquires in real time the value of COD and nitrates characterizing the incoming waters to check their quality.
The plant is composed of:
