Drinking Water: An Environmental Filtration System Part 2
Region:Cariboo Mainline
City:Merritt, BC
School:Merritt Secondary
Abstract:This project created six wastewater systems that contained the filtration, sand cleaning, cloth filter, and aeration of a traditional treatment system with the plants, zooplankton and snails from a solar aquatic treatment system to produce clean water. Every four days polluted water flowed through the systems which were assessed for twelve water quality tests. The experimental results did not support the hypothesis for household consumption.
