Why You Enjoy Healthy Drinking Water
Clean water is important to you because it allows you to stay healthy. Not only that. You are able to do other important things like washing your clothes, your dishes, and your car. Thanks to package plants at Ashton Tucker Water Treatment, you continue to enjoy the clean and safe water. The EPA describes package plants as premanufactured plants that treat wastewater in communities like the one where you live in.
Benefits Offered by Package Plants
There are many reasons small communities like yours have package plants. According to the EPA, these plants are easy to operate and several of them can be manned for a maximum of three to four hours a day. These plants also allow for extended aeration process, which ensures that the water you are about to drink is totally free of bacteria. Also, these are easily installed since the parts are shipped in one or two pieces which are mounted on an onsite concrete pad. In addition, the systems are odor free and can be landscaped to match the surrounding area.
Limitations of Package Plants
There are limitations, though, to what packaged plants can do for your community. For one, there is no guarantee that package plants produce 100% clean water. Many believe that highly variable influent water quality requires a high level of operational skill and attention which is not characteristic of package plants. Package plants may not meet one important requirement of the Safe Drinking Water Act, which is being able to treat multiple types of contaminants. Operators of your package plant should be highly skilled. If the automation system of the plant fails, the plant needs to be operated manually.
To ensure package plants produce quality water like the ones produced by regular water-filtering plants, manufacturers should conduct regular inspections. That is for you to always have clean water.
