Robertsdale constructs clarifiers

Almost every Robertsdale city council meeting has some mention of the “clarifiers” being built at the city’s wastewater treatment plant on County Road 52

The clarifier makes solids settle out,” said city engineer Greg Smith. The solids in the wastewater are transferred to sludge ponds and beneficial (aerobic bacteria, which are organisms that live in an oxygen environment is used to break down the solids before the water is returned to the clarifier. The solid-free water from the clarifier is sanitized using ultraviolet light before being released, almost bacteria free, into Rock Creek.
