Annie - My name is Annie Bloomfield. I am a grade 12 student from Dr. John Hugh Gillis Regional High School in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. I will be taking Medical Science at Western University this fall. I work on a horse farm and enjoy horseback riding, dance, art, music and 4H. I also really enjoy science... I love taking a pressing issue and creating a solution for it. My partner, Malcolm, and I were very interested in experimenting with water pollution and alleviating the residential use of freshwater. Plans for further investigations would include experimenting on a larger scale and introducing a vacuum to our system to extract biodegradable sediment. My advice for students that are considering pursuing a project is to ask questions. Tons and tons of significant questions. Then experiment until you find an answer!
Malcolm - My name is Malcolm Cameron and I am a grade 12 student from Antigonish, Nova Scotia. In the fall of 2019, I plan to attend Dalhousie University to take Medical Sciences. I have been a competitive swimmer for 9 years, I am student council co-president of my school, and I teach kids swimming lessons. My partner, Annie, and I originally started a project to find a way to clean ocean pollution. It didn't quite work out, so we looked into household wastewater clarification. With more investigation, we hope to include a vacuum to our filtration system to extract biodegradable sediment. My advice for students thinking about doing a project would be to start a long time before the project deadline! After reaching our first conclusion, we sought to figure out better ways to clarify water. We completed multiple rounds of testing until reaching our final conclusion. Start early so you will have the time and resources to make your project better!

Grey is the Way: Developing a Residential Greywater Treatment
City:Antigonish, NS
School:Dr. John Hugh Gillis Regional School
Abstract:The purpose of our project was to make household wastewater recyclable. We created a natural clarifier to treat the wastewater and used this in combination with a series of filtrations to reach our goal. Our water treatments can be used to reduce freshwater usage in houses by 26-30%. It can be used for toilets, showers, washing machines, gardening, and more!
