Osmosis

Water molecules passing through membranes naturally, to the side with the highest concentration of dissolved impurities.

Outfall

Oxidation

A chemical reaction in which ions are transferring electrons, to increase positive valence.

Oxidation pond

A man-made body of water in which waste is consumed by bacteria.

Oxidation-reduction potential

The electric potential required to transfer electrons from the oxidant to the reductant, used as a qualitative measure of the state of oxidation in water treatment systems.

Oxygen depletion

The reduction of the dissolved oxygen level in a water body.

Ozone

An unstable oxidizing agent, that consists of three oxygen atoms and can be found in the ozone layer in the atmosphere. It is produced by electrical discharge through oxygen or by specifically designed UV-lamps.
