Firstly, visiting the Aguaclara treatment plant in Tamara community. This is the first agauclara plant equipped with filters.
The operators of this plant met a problem during the operation process. The flocs always rise up to the surface of the water which impair the effect of flocculation.
The team members tried to figure out the problem and finally find that the high -water level of the entrance tank is the reason. Make some construction to add more head loss at the entrance tank may solve this problem.
Although there is some problem during the flocculation, the water quality of the effluent after going through the filters is quite good. The turbidity meter shows the turbidity of effluent is 0 NTU. The treated water even can be drunk just after waiting for 30 minutes.
After visiting the plant, aguaclara team members went hiking with the operators to find out one of the water resources of the plant. It was quite a long and rough hiking. We had to climb the very steep slope and walk through the mud. Shoes are all changed the original color to be brown.
The scenery is quite beautiful and is worthy of hard walking.
This is one of the water resources of the Tamara Aguaclara plant.
After a long and meaningful morning, we went to a Chinese restaurant to have lunch. The scenery inside is amazing and the food taste really good. What is the most exciting thing is that there is Wi-Fi in this restaurant!!!
After the group meeting to conclude the reflection of one-day’s activities, we enjoyed a campfire, talking about some interesting stories around the fire.
