Tertiary wastewater treatment is the final stage in the wastewater treatment process. It typically involves the removal of suspended solids, phosphorus, nitrogen, and other contaminants from wastewater to produce an effluent suitable for either direct discharge or indirect discharge depending on its quality.
This type of treatment is often carried out using advanced processes such as activated sludge, membrane filtration, reverse osmosis, and industrial filtration systems.
