Guide to on-site wastewater management for industrial and commercial establishments and other institutions

To address the wastewater management issue of medium to small-scale industries and other commercial establishments and institutions the WASPA Project has developed a series of booklets for selected sectors. This booklet is written as a guideline on wastewater management for vehicle service stations. It is intended to serve the reader as a reference in understanding how to manage the wastewater on-site. It provides guidelines on Best Management Practices (BMPs) and Cleaner Production (CP) options which can lead to a reduction of pollutant loads and cost savings to the owners or managers. Furthermore, it guides the owners and managers in selecting the treatment system that suits the wastewater characteristics of their businesses; and for those who already have a treatment system, it provides guidance on how to maintain the system without interruption.
