Water is pumped into the treatment centre from our reservoir’s, where it has been carefully monitored.
Screens remove large solids like stones plus twigs and leaves.
A chemically active form of oxygen, ozone, is passed through the water to destroy micro-organism and oxidise metals. An approved Iron based chemical is added to the water to act as a binding agent for particles and precipitate naturally occurring dissolved metals out of the water, as well as removing any remaining organic matter.
The coagulated particles are separated from the water to form a sludge. The sludge is removed and used as a high organic matter soil conditioner by our customers and the clarified water passes to the filters.
The clarified water passes through sand and gravel which removes any remaining particles. Filtered water is clean and colourless.
The water is disinfected with chlorine to reduce the risk of contamination in your water pipes.
The purified water is then pumped to a high tower or local high point until it is needed.
Clean water is now available for the end user.
