Plants and systems for the treatment of waste and sewage

The Industrial Park Victor Espaillat Mera (PIVEM) has a treatment plant for wastewater, which offers its services to all industrial companies that would like to benefit from this. This plant began operations in 1998, for all industrial companies located within the park. The companies discharges their waste-water through a special line that leads to the treatment process, which removes contaminants to provide water without risk to our health or the environment.

The treatment plant is the tertiary type with a combined process feature. Its design for a million gallons a day and works with an efficiency of 90%, allowing treated water to be discharged into the mainstream, without any contaminants.

The treatment begins with a biological process, with the assistance of a ventilator to keep oxygen in the water, oxidization of iron, manganese and remove volatile organic compounds. In a second part, we utilize polymer coagulants and flocculants used for accelerated sedimentation of solids. This ends with the application of chlorine to eliminate microbiological contaminants.

The plant has its own laboratory, which monitors water both entrance and exit of the treatment facilities. The Santiago Free Zone Corporation is responsible for the entire process of compliance with existing rules and parameters in the discharge of waste-water, both at national and international standards.
