Chemical Treatment of Wastewater
Sometimes the water may contain harmful chemicals even after treating it physically and biologically.
These chemicals are disinfected from the water by using disinfectants such as chlorine and Ozone. Hence, Chlorine gas or ozone gas is often introduced in this water to purify it chemically.
