Settling tanks are essential parts of wastewater treatment process and their correct design is therefore crucial for its operation. Modeling of flow in these tanks is difficult, therefore it is necessary to find right tool to perform as precise work as possible. In this article flow velocity measurement in two different secondary settling tanks in Slovakia is presented. Rectangular settling tank in Dolný Kubín and radial settling tank with horizontal flow in Nižná nad Oravou were chosen for this purpose. Data gained from these measurement events will be used for building a model and followed by simulation. Additional data from operation of wastewater treatment plants are also used during the work.
