    Great shots! Is this waste water treatment?

    • Tony Partridge April 19, 2013 at 9:13 am

      Thanks! Yes, this is a wastewater treatment plant that produces high quality recycled water to be used for irrigation and by houses that are dual plumbed (for toilet flushing, garden watering, washing machine).

    Thanks Tony. That sounds like a plan and the water did look pretty pure. However, we both know it takes water sample to regulate that. What country or state is this in? I think it is a good idea.

    Fantastic shots Tony. Would you mind if we put a link to them on our website?

      Hi Gladys, I would love it if you would provide a link on your website. The impressive results from Haslin’s design and construction contract should be shared.
