Water leaving our homes generally goes either into a septic tank in the back yard where it seeps back into the ground or is sent to a sewage-treatment plant through a sewer system.

Different treatment is used depending on the type of water coming into the plant and the water-quality requirements of water leaving the plant. Often the first stages of water treatment are purely physical methods, such as letting solid particles settle to the bottom of a holding tank and filtering the water through sand or other fine particulate matter. Filters are used to screen out large particles, and at a minimum, chlorine is added to kill dangerous bacteria and microorganisms.
