The reason that wastewater needs to be purified is because it contains a lot of substamces as phosphorus, organic substances, bacteria, viruses and environmental toxins. It is not desirable for such substances to be returned to the sea. lakes, streams or rivers. Discharges of these substances will be very damaging for the life in the ocean.
Wastewater can be purified mechanic, biological or by a combination of this methods. Chemical treatment plant are built especially to purify chemicals as mercury, cadium, chrome, iron, gold, copper and phosphorus, while the biological method are mainly made to remove organic materials.

Industrial wasteawater often contain of particulated or dissolved substance (process water) or be heated (cooling water).
Surface water can be water which drains off from farms, streets and roofs.
All industri which has an activity which contains water in their production normally have a need to purifytheir wastewater. What kind of wastewater soulution the requires depends on how polluted the water is and where the water is supposed to be dropped back.
Another type of water which may be purified is surface water which directly or indirectly pollutes in contexts with rainwater. This process will lead to contamination of the nature, and therefore this water may need to be purified.
