From the flocculators, the water enters into one of five clarifiers. Here, the velocity of the water is reduced, allowing the floc to settle rapidly to the bottom and the clear water to flow over the top of the basin. The settled floc is called spent lime and eventually flows to the dewatering plant, where the solids are separated and the remaining water content is recycled to the plant. The solid lime is trucked out for agricultural use.
As the water flows out of the clarifiers, it enters the recarbonation basin. Carbon dioxide gas is added to lower the pH of the water. Fluoride is also added in this chamber, which improves dental health.
