Where does "waste" go?
A simplified explanation of the wastewater treatment process...
Bathroom wastewater: toilet, sink, shower/bathtub other household wastewater: kitchen sink, garage sink, etc.
Wastewater flows to a pipe below your home
and flows to a larger pipe that then carries the waste to the wastewater treatment plant
At the wastewater treatment plant, the waste is processed/filtered through the following steps:
First, waste arrives at the treatment plant to filter through a screen. The screen traps large, non-organic debris that cannot be processed. Examples include baby wipes, "flushable" wipes (that should NOT be flushed), toys, pencils, anything that shouldn't go down the drain/toilet.
Next, any non-organic materials that the screen traps is then removed and dropped in a dumpster for the landfill.
This is an image of part of a screen that broke due to non-organic material.
Next, the waste travels through the grit classifier, which is a smaller screen that traps any sand-like material from flowing further through the treatment plant. Material trapped by this screen is also dropped into a dumpster for the landfill.
Next, the waste collects in these basins for further treatment. Micro-organisms "eat" the undesired bacteria. Chemicals (such as chlorine) are also used to treat phosphorus.
Lastly, the waste enters the clarifier, which separates particles for cleaner water. Particles will either sink to the bottom or float to the top, which is then sifted out. The clean water discharges into the Rock River Basin just south of the treatment plant.
