What does it take to treat the water?
The process consists of coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration, fluoridation, and disinfection. The
The water will then flow into a disinfection tank. The chlorine is added at the beginning of this tank, which has a serpentine configuration to ensure enough contact time between the water and chlorine for complete disinfection to take place. The water flows through this tank into the clearwell. The pH corrective chemical (soda ash), the corrosion inhibitor (sodium silicate), and the fluoride additive (sodium silicofluoride) are added at this time. A solution of aqueous ammonia is also added to convert the free chlorine to combined chlorine as the final disinfectant residual
