Furthermore, many of these systems depend on sensitive electronic equipment. The combination of the intricacies of the systems and the importance of them means that an efficient lightning and surge protection system should be installed in the facility.
The lightning and protection systems for water protection and wastewater treatment systems should be incorporated into the site’s construction, and feature an intermeshed earthing or grounding system. Ideally, these grounding systems should be designed by the engineering firm or department creating the design. Along with this grounding system, strategically placed and appropriately designed and installed surge arresters should be added to ensure the best defense against lightning and surge events.
