Abstract

The discharge of untreated abattoir wastewater and domestic waste to the stream can have adverse effect on the environment and human health. This study was carried out to design a wastewater treatment system for Ugwuoba abattoir and the settlements around it. Population data was collected from the abattoir and the settlements which gave average design flow of 500.5m3/d and peak design flow of 2002m3/d. The designed wastewater system was in five stages from screen, aerated grit chamber, primary sedimentation, aeration basin for biological treatment and secondary clarifier. The dimensions obtained for each chamber was based on the design criteria for wastewater treatment system.
