From Sewage to Water

Sewage

Year 11 Chemistry set out on an interesting and unique fieldtrip to our local Sewage Treatment Plant and Reclaimed Water Treatment Plant recently. The purpose of this trip was to provide us with first-hand experience with how raw sewage is transformed into reclaimed water. This is to help us complete our first depth-study assessment, which requires us to gather evidence to answer the question “what is reclaimed water, and should we drink it?” Many of us found the trip enthralling, although some of us were glad it was quite ephemeral. It was certainly a bonding experience for our class.

Our thanks to Kim Freeman, Project Officer with Port Macquarie Hastings Council, who generously organised the trip and coordinated with other council staff at both sites. And finally thanks to Mr O’Mullane, our Chemistry teacher.
