Where Does All The Poop Go?

Where Does All The POOP GO! Synopsis

The Poop Is Encountered by Cockroaches & Water Bugs in the sewers.

Primary Treatment

Wastewater passes through a channel of sewers and to the sewage treatment plant. Here, the wastewater is cleaned of large debris that may obstruct or damage the equipment. Large objects include nappies, tissues, rags and even bricks. Thereafter, the human waste or poop is separated from the water and converted to “sludge”. The clear water at the top is taken away for further treatment.

Goes for Sludge Treatment

The Sludge that is collected is then treated by employing one or many of the following processes that include lime stabilization, thickening, or anaerobic digestion. Sludge that is collected is also treated and reused as manure for farming or used to generate gas.

Treated Sludge

Treated Sludge finds widespread applications; it is used as a landfill, incinerated, or used as manure for farming or to generate biogas. It is also used to generate energy that turns turbines, runs windmills, lights up your homes and greenhouses and provides cooking gas. Being rich in nutrients from human waste makes for a high-quality organic fertilizer that helps your crops grow and that too without the use of any chemicals.

Secondary Treatment

Although visibly clean, the water still harbours bad bacteria and needs further treatment. In the secondary treatment, good bacteria are made to feed on the nasty germs until all of them are killed.

Final Treatment

The treated water then goes to a settlement tank where good bacteria sink to the bottom and create more sludge which is either removed or treated. The pure, clean water can now be safely reused. Tertiary treatment can be applied individually or combined to meet emission or water quality standards.

Back to River

Now the wastewater is clean, it can be returned to local rivers and streams.
