Year 5’s trip to Esholt Water Treatment Works.

As well as recycling water, Yorkshire Water tries to use some of the processes to help them save energy. Caitlin (5F), wants to know if you can think what energy saving process this demonstration shows. Do you know?

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.

The children are looking down at the water as it rushes into the River.

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.

Year 5’s trip to Headingley Water Treatment Plant

The first part of the cleaning process is screening where big lumps are taken out of the water.
These pictures show the second part of the cleaning process. A chemical is added which attracts particles. This process is carried out in tanks called flocculators.

Did you know?

Yorkshire Water has 116 water treatment works.

The raw water (Uncleaned water), comes from reservoirs, rivers, boreholes and springs. Yorkshire Water does not take any water from the sea.
