Now I've made it to the water softening stage! This is important to help make sure I don't carry any presence of metal ions because this can cause lasting problems. Here I will be treated with two things, sodium carbonate alongside calcium hydroxide, to make sure I don't ruin peoples plumbing!
We have made it to the last step in this process, before continuing on to my permanent home, which is very exciting. Here ammonia is being added to me and all my friends. This helps to balance any remaining chlorine, and keep me safe on my way from the plant to peoples homes!
Also to ensure that the quality of me and my other water molecule friends is good, I will be tested regularly to make sure I'm safe to drink!
Here I am! At Huron Park. I was transported here with all my water molecule friends with the help of a few tools such as pumping stations and reservoirs. Now that I'm settled lets reflect on some things.
I think it is important to talk about my many enemies along this journey, such has algae, debris, and large objects that had to of been removed for me to be able to be clean and fresh. Yet my good friends such as filters were able to rid of them from me and my water molecule friends to help us continue on our journey. If it weren't for other stabilizers such as chlorine and ammonia I also wouldn't be here at huron park.
