The process commonly used to remove dirt and sand from wastewater is known as “primary treatment” or “preliminary treatment.” This is the first step in wastewater treatment and focuses on the physical removal of large solid particles and debris from the wastewater. The primary treatment process typically involves the following methods:

  1. Screening: Wastewater is passed through screens or grates with openings of various sizes to capture large objects such as sticks, leaves, plastic, and other debris. This helps prevent these materials from entering the treatment process further downstream.
  2. Grit Removal: After screening, the wastewater may go through a grit chamber, where sand, gravel, and small mineral particles are allowed to settle out due to gravity. These abrasive materials can cause damage to equipment and impede the treatment process, so their removal is important.

By removing dirt, sand, and larger solids during the primary treatment phase, the wastewater becomes cleaner and can proceed to secondary and tertiary treatment processes, where finer suspended particles, organic matter, and pollutants are further reduced or eliminated.
