Slide 6

Does this imply I contaminate? Water POLLUTION is placing things in the water that don't have a place. Water contamination starts in our homes. When we wash our hands, brush our teeth, or do clothing, we are dirtying the water. When all that toothpaste and cleanser you simply used to clean your teeth, hands, body and garments spirals down the deplete, it gets to be WASTEWATER.

So, where does the wastewater go when it leaves our homes? The wastewater goes through channels called a sewer framework. The sewer framework conveys the wastewater from your home to the Sanitation District No. 1's Dry Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant. The Treatment Plant's occupation is to SANITIZE , or clean the wastewater that simply left your home. The wastewater experiences 3 phases of treatment: synthetic, natural, and physical.

Slide 8

Step 1: Chemical Treatment Chlorine is the main compound that SD1 employments. It is added to the wastewater.

Slide 9

Step Two: Physical Gravity pulls the strong waste to the base of the treatment tanks. These solids are called SLUDGE.

Slide 10

Step Three: Biological In this stage, SD1 copies nature. Modest MICROORGANISMS that live off the oxygen in the water eat around 92% of the waste that is left after the initial two stages of treatment. At the point when the microorganisms are full, they sink to the base getting to be muck. The muck is scratched from the base of the tank and is isolated from the water.
