What is reverse osmosis and how is it best used?

In wastewater treatment, reverse osmosis is a water purification technology that, like ultrafiltration, uses a semipermeable membrane to remove larger particles from drinking water. But in reverse osmosis, an applied pressure is used to overcome osmotic pressure, a colligative property that is driven by chemical potential, a thermodynamic parameter.

In primary treatment, what are the pH process controls for treating wastewater?

The measure of free hydrogen activity in water -- called “pH” for “potential for hydrogen” -- is undoubtedly the most important and most-used wastewater treatment measure. Dependence on pH as a measure relevant to water quality and its control occurs in practically every phase of water supply and wastewater treatment, including acid-base neutralization, water softening, precipitation, coagulation, disinfection and corrosion control.
