Form 1 report on trip to water treatment plant by Leah Tedder:

“I have the privilege, on behalf of the Form 1 pupils, to tell you about the lovely class trip we went on 1 June. The water treatment plant in Greytown is where the water from Merthley Lake is purified into water we can drink without becoming ill. There are four processes that this water goes through before it can flow through our taps:

• Coagulation. This is a process whereby a chemical is added to the water to make the particles join together, making them heavier.

• Sedimentation. During this process, the particles (which have joined) sink to the bottom.

• Filtration. This process involves the water going through sand (and this acts like glue) making whichever particles are left get stuck in the sand.

• Last but not least, the pure water is stored in tanks.

A special thank you to Mr Munessar for allowing us to come to the treatment plant. Our dam is currently at 14%.”
