Thermal pollution

Discharge of heated water from industrial processes in receiving surface water, causing death or injury of aquatic organisms.

Titration

An analytical technique to determine how much of a substance is present in a water sample by adding another substance and measuring how much of that substance must be added to produce a reaction.

TDS

Total Dissolved Solids. The weight per unit volume of water of suspended solids in a filter media after filtration or evaporation. Please use also our information about TDS and conductivity.

TH

Total Hardness. The sum of calcium and magnesium hardness, expressed as a calcium carbonate equivalent.

TS

Total Solids. The weight of all present solids per unit volume of water. It is usually determined by evaporation. The total weight concerns both dissolved and suspended organic and inorganic matter.

Total solids

All the solids in wastewater or sewage water, including suspended solids and filterable solids.

Toxic water pollutants

Compounds that are not naturally found in water at the given concentrations and that cause death, disease, or birth defects in organisms that ingest or absorb them.

Transmission lines

Pipelines that transport raw water from its source to a water treatment plant.

Transmissivity

The ability of an aquifer to transmit water.

Transpiration

The process by which water vapour is released into the atmosphere after transpiring of living plants.

Treatment plant

A structure built to treat wastewater before discharging it into the environment.

Trickling filter

A wastewater treatment unit that contains medium material with bacteria. The stream of wastewater is trickled over the medium and the bacteria break down the organic wastes. Bacteria are collected on the filter medium.

THM

Trihalomethanes. Toxic chemical substances that consist of a methane molecule and one of the halogen elements fluorine, bromine, chlorine and iodine attached to three positions of the molecule. They usually have carcinogenic properties.
