Final Clarifiers

 There are two 40-foot square final clarifiers at the plant.  These clarifiers accept flow from the aeration tanks and settle out the microorganisms that were used to break down the organics during the aeration process.  The final clarifiers and aeration tanks are systems that are always changing and must be balanced very carefully so that the necessary amount of microorganisms and oxygen are available for proper treatment.  Once the flow has passed through the final clarifiers, it is then transported for disinfection to the chlorine contact tanks.  The accumulated solids that settle in the tanks are collected and removed or pumped back into the aeration tanks, depending on the amount of microorganisms needed for efficient treatment.
