What are Suspended Solids?
Suspended Solids is simply a density measurement used to describe exactly how much waste sludge and particles are in the water. Used as one of the indicators of water quality in wastewater and industrial applications, suspended solids are used as part of the charging system for trade effluent.
Suspended Solids can be made up of both organic material and inorganic material depending on the location, and while high levels can occur naturally in some streams and bodies of water, generally a lower measurement is best for healthy water.
