A Primary Sedimentation Tank lets smaller particles settle. Scrapers collect the solid matter that remains (called “primary sludge”) plus scum or grease floating on top of the tank for processing in our compost facility
An Aeration tank supplies large amounts of air to a mixture of wastewater, bacteria and other microorganisms.
Oxygen from the air speeds the growth of helpful microorganisms, which consume harmful organic matter in the wastewater.
Secondary Sediment Tank
The secondary sedimentation tank allows the microorganisms and solid wastes to form clumps and settle. Some of this mixture called “activated sludge” can be mixed with air again and reused in the aeration tank.
