How wastewater goes from polluted to pure

Posted by George J Janczyn on May 1, 2011

The American Chemical Society produced this video showing the steps that are followed in order to convert wastewater into purified drinking water (potable reuse). With the start of operations for San Diego’s Water Purification Demonstration Project fast approaching and educational outreach programs for community planning groups already underway, the video could be useful if used to supplement the city’s public outreach effort — which at times seems rough around the edges. Although it doesn’t cover reservoir augmentation with purified recycled water as San Diego’s project aims to do, the video delivers a fair amount of pertinent information and details with a matter-of-fact style.
