Project Description

Project Requirements

Because the sewage treatment system treats waster water which contains biological contamination and eurtrophication, it needs to use various procedures and chemicals to make the water finally clean and go back to the city water supply circulation. Therefore the water container structure requires to survive under extremely severe conditions and meet high requirements such as microbiological and chemical attack resistance, waterproofing, durability and high mechanical resistance.
