The article focuses on the installation of a clamp-on ultrasonic flowmeter (CUF) which helps the wastewater treatment plant (WTF) in Louisiana. It states that the CUF is capable of addressing the diverse range of fluids processed by WTF. It cites several stages on the process of treating wastewater including preliminary treatment that removes larger-sized debris, primary treatment which treats solids and reduce strong odors, and secondary treatment that involves a separation process.
