Technical water treatment text.
Probably the sludge remaining after flushing or cleaning of the system (?). Is there a precise term? needed urgently. Thanks
Explanation: Boues de curage - sludge
It looks like you are dealing with a chemical treatment process, and in order to dump the processing chemicals they have to be precipitated as sludge, and later cleaned out.
Dechets - usually refers more to solid waste, but can be applied to liquid.
