Dilution of wastewaters in water bodies does not actually constitute a solution for the disposal of wastewaters because wastes introduced into water bodies disturb, or worse, destroy existing ecosystems. Therefore, land disposal of wastewaters after some pretreatment may be considered as an alternative to disposal in water bodies.
