Plant, and more here.

The water in the last few pictures was the clean water, I take it? I hope. :) The rest of the water was starting to creep me out because of the orange marks and such...yeck. You'll have to explain more about the pictures. It looks very fascinating. Have fun and congrats once again!

Thanks! Isn't that the coolest? The fourth-to-last pic (P1240040, one of four filter basins) is the cleanest you ever see the water before it goes over a weir, gets chlorinated, and goes to the main reservoir tank to give the chlorine time to act. Yeah anywhere you can see the orange colored sediment is pretty nasty, but if you think that's bad, you should see it fall OFF those sheets. It's like an avalanche of gross. The red splotches on the stainless-steel plate settlers is either manganese or iron deposits of some kind, not algae, but there's plenty of that around, too. The great thing is that this town has super excellent water, and my three new coworkers are why. Two have worked at it for over twenty years, and one for just four but he's already as anal as they are. So far it's a blast, I'll blog more soon.
