Wastewater Treatment Prototype and Technology Development for Natural Resource and Environment Conservation Using Community Based on Local Knowledge

Witthaya Mekhum
Abstract—This research was aimed to develop the prototype wastewater treatment technologies to conserve natural resources and environment of local community. The results revealed about the production problems and their impacts on the environment. The community houses had a massively impact on the environment and surrounding community that happened as follows. 1) The issue of chemical residues in water 2) The health issues were directly caused by conventional treatment processes. In addition, the results before and after the sewage were found as followings. (1) The pH before was 9.50 and after treatments of wastewater was 8.30. (2) BOD Before treatment with 110 mg/L, and after wastewater was 17.60 mg/L. (3) COD Before treatment with 629 mg/L, and untreated sewage was 100.64 mg/L . 4) Lead before treatment with the 0.32 mg/L , and the untreated wastewater was 0.13 mg/L. (5) Mercury before treatment with 0.0005 mg/L, and the untreated wastewater was 0.0005 mg/L.

Index Terms—Technology development, wastewater treatment prototype, natural resource and environment.
