The investment of Põltsamaa Varahalduse wastewater treatment plant in Project BEST
E-Piim Tootmine Ltd and Orkla Eesti Ltd are big food industries in Estonia and clients of the municipal wastewater treatment plant in Põltsamaa. These two industries amount to ca 60% of the wastewater load in Põltsamaa and the treatment plant receives wastewater with high biological oxygen demand and nutrient contents from both the food and dairy production. The communication between the water utility and industries should be as frequent and constructive as possible to be able to adjust the process based on needs and capacity of both parts, but especially the treatment process at the wastewater treatment plant.
In order for Põltsamaa Varahalduse to better know the quality and quantity of influent water from industries, the wastewater treatment plant is investing in mobile sampling and analyzing equipment. By the help of the analyzing results, the treatment plant can better adjust the treatment process to the real composition of the received industrial wastewater.
