Year 5’s trip to Esholt Water Treatment Plant.

This is the final stage, the sludge is removed from the top of the water and the cleaned water is discharged into the River Aire.

Year 5’s trip to Esholt Water Treatment Works.

This is a process near the end of the cleaning process. Air is pumped into the water. Sludge floats the the surface along with the air. It is carried out in big tanks and is called Dissoved Air Flotation.

Everyone had to wear a hard hat, hi-viz (high visibility) jacket and glasses because we were on a working site.
