Domestic wastewater from residential homes contains various pollutants that can contaminate the environment and lead to public health issues. Although the contaminants are relatively small in quantity compared to industrial facilities, they can still impact the ecology. Notably, a domestic wastewater treatment plant helps treat the effluent before safely releasing it to the environment. That said, domestic wastewater treatment plants are only as efficient as their filtration systems. The most common filtration systems contain carbon filters or activated carbon filters (ACFs).
