What becomes of the treated waste residuals?
In treating the wastewater, we concentrate the solids through the treatment processes. This occurs in the anaerobic digestives.

We have 5 anaerobic digestives. We use 2 of them as primary digestives. They are in a mix mode process. The other 3 are for solids separation and settling. As the solids and liquids separate, we draw off the liquid supernate.

When we have removed that portion, the solids are sent to the mix tank. From there they are sent to the filtration room where we have 2 2-meter Roediger belt tower presses. With the addition of polymer, we increase the solids level from 2-4% solids to 20-27% solids. This is taken for disposal to the landfill.
