Water Treatment Process!

Our water comes from the Otways!

  1.  Water is collected from rivers, dams or underground, and pumped through pipes to where it is needed.
  2. Raw water from rivers is stored here to allow solid particles to settle to the bottom.
  3. Special chemicals (called alum) are added to help impurities sink to the bottom and be removed.
  4. This process makes impurities settle to the bottom so that they can be removed.
  5. Special chemicals are added to float impurities to the surface, so they can be removed.
  6. The water is filtered through different filters (eg: sand filter) to clean the water.
  7. The pH of the water (how acidic it is) is checked and adjusted to the proper level.
  8. The water is disinfected so that it is safe to drink (using chlorine or other methods).
  9. Clean drinking water is stored until it is needed by customers.
