South District Wastewater Treatment Plant
The raw wastewater that comes into the South District Wastewater Treatment Plant first goes through conventional treatment, which consists of the following steps:
- Heavy solids are separated from the wastewater stream.
- Biological matter is progressively converted into a solid mass by using indigenous, water-borne micro-organisms.
- Finally, the biological solids are neutralized and either disposed of or reused. The treated water may be disinfected chemically or physically.
In the case of Miami-Dade County's project, the water will go from secondary treatment through the High-Level Disinfection plant that is under construction.
