Paul Warnke from the Koontz Lake Sewer District has been with us this week talking about the new sewer system being constructed in Koontz Lake.
The clean water plant takes the incoming product and processes it through many stages of purification. Warnke talks about the final product.
“What is discharged is a grade of water that is termed near drinking water quality,” Warnke said. “The final step in the purification is to run it under high intensity ultra violets and essentially, we consider it to be clean and bacteria free.”
