Water is fed from city water tanks and is delivered to indvidual residents.
Wastewater is created
Wastewater is discharged from individual properties, piped through a series of lift stations and gravity fed into the wastewater treatment facility.
Particle and Debris screening
A spiral screen filters out large particled and debris from the incoming wastewater. The screen also dewaters the particles and debris and bags the dry material.
Wastewater flows into a series of lagoons where it is aerated and the fine solids settle to the bottom.
Moving Bed Bioreactor (MBBR)
Wastewater flows into the MBBR where is is further aerated. As the media is mixed, microbes eat away inorganic waste and ammonia (NH3) to clean the wastewater. The digestion of nitrates also produces ixygen which aids in the cleaning process.
Wastewater flows into the flocculation tank where polymer is added to aid in the coagulation of all remaining solid materials into one mass for removal.
Wastewater flows through a set of filters to collect the remaining coagulated solid materials. Clean water is discharged from this component.
Solid free water is treated through a process of chlorination and dichlorination as a final treatment to ensure that water is E.coli and bacteria free.
The final discharge of clean and treated water flows into the Republican River.
