Home / Primary Clarifier

The screened, de-gritted wastewater then flows to circular sedimentation basins called primary clarifiers. The wastewater remains in these basins for several hours, which allows a portion of the suspended solids in the wastewater to settle to the bottom of the basin. The sludge collected at the bottom of these tanks is removed with pumps and transferred to the sludge storage tanks.
