How do treatment plant protect our water?
Remove solids, everything from rags and plastics to sand and smaller particles found in wastewater;
Reduce organic matter and pollutants--naturally occurring helpful bacteria and other microorganisms consume organic matter in wastewater and are then separated from the water; and,
Restore oxygen--the treatment process ensures that the water put back into our rivers or lakes has enough oxygen to support life.
