Wastewater is an unavoidable by-product of most manufacturing processes. Wastewater generated by industrial activities contains chemical, biological and physical contaminants that can be harmful to both plant and animal life within the affected environments (land and aquatic).

In the US, the environmental protection agency (EPA) regulates the treatment and discharge of wastewater under the Clean Water Act. This requires all industrial operators to adhere to strict treatment protocols. A critical aspect of wastewater treatment is process temperature control.

This article will consider the reasons why cooling in the wastewater treatment process is necessary and outline different methods for controlling supporting
