The high level of pollution poses a threat to the aquatic environment, because with the actual inflow to the treatment facilities of 7,580 m3/day. The concentration of residual pollutants in biologically treated wastewater according to BOD reaches 31.6 mgO2/dm3. Suspended solids – 24 mg/dm3, phosphates – 8.2 mg/dm3, COD – 59 mgO/dm3, ammonium nitrogen 12.1 mg/dm3, dry residue – 444 mg/dm3, nitrites – 0.161 mg/dm3, nitrates – 1.0 mg/dm3, chlorides – 29 mg/dm3, sulfates – 27 mg/dm3, phosphates – 8.2 mg/dm3, BOD5 – 23.8 mgO2/dm3, ASAS – 0.032 mg/dm3, total iron – 0.29 mg/dm3.
