The nature and composition of effluents from railways works varies depending on the requirements and the necessary work processes. Legislation lays down minimum requirements for the purity of effluents discharged. The treatment of effluents is subdivided into process stages for which various technical possibilities exist. The use of the techniques possible depends among other things on the energy resources and the state of technical development. Preliminary measures for improving the effluent situation are adopted before new plant is constructed. The proper functioning of effluent cleaning plants is checked at frequent intervals.
