Wet/Low Solids Sludge

Wet sludge is a sign that the sludge conditioning/dewatering process is not working as well as it should. This could be the result of an out of balance chemical treatment program, poor functioning sludge separation equipment, or some combination of both. Wet sludge adds undesired volume prior to disposal and can add extra expense. Wet sludge may also not be accepted at the landfill – adding more costs to condition it.
