How Is Water Cleaned In America is covered in the Absolute Rights newsletter, to reveal exactly what steps are taken to clean water. Most of the waste water treatment plants in America use the same principles outlined below, says the recent Absolute Rights newsletter.
First the water has to be screened, because it contains things that need to be removed like rocks, wood, dead animals and anything else that has fallen into the water, explains the newsletter. Next the water treatment plant uses the force of gravity for the sewage to move to the water treatment plant, reveals the Absolute Rights newsletter, since gravity is the primary force behind this part of the process, water treatment plants are typically located where the ground is lower.
There are parts of the country that it is not possible to place the water treatment on lower ground, so the water will be pumped up into aeration tanks, explains then recent newsletter. After the water has been pumped up, then gravity can be used to move the waste water through all the other processes that the water goes through in the treatment plant.
Then the water is shaken around during aeration, the dissolved gases that smell like rotten eggs, which actually are hydrogen sulfide will be released from the water, adds the Absolute Rights newsletter. Next the water will enter into a series of parallel, long concrete tanks, which are divided into a couple of sections, adds the newsletter.
The stuff in the water like sand, coffee grounds, and any other dense particles will be forced out of the water by the bubbling oxygen, while the organic matter is suspended, reveals the Absolute Rights newsletter. Next the dense stuff is forced out of the water, explains the newsletter, and is pumped into tanks where it is moved to landfills.
Next the water goes into the sedimentation tanks where the organic matter, or sewage called sludge, settles to the bottom of the water and is then pumped out of the sedimentation tanks, reveals the newsletter. While the sludge is going to the bottom of the tanks, there is lighter waste, like oil, soap, grease, plastics, along with other light stuff that floats to the top of the water, adds the Absolute Rights newsletter, and is then raked off the surface. Next, the newsletter reveals, the water goes into the chlorine tank, which is how to make clean water from dirty water because it kills the bacteria
