Today we took a field trip to the Dunedin Water Treatment Plant. We saw how different chemicals were injected into the water to make it safe to drink.
These are the holding tanks!
We learned how the pumps work and how only this one plant serves all of the Dunedin community.
We learned about the filtration systems and how they have to change the tubes in the RO machines.
Each giant tube has 3 giant filters.
There were a LOT of filters!!!
We wrapped up in the ops room where all the calls come in for issues people have.
My favorite part of the tour was learning about the pressure gauges and meters at peoples homes that can detect unusual usage and potential leaks before they get out of hand.
