The Guadalupe-Blanco River Authority (GBRA), with funding by the Environmental Protection Agency through the Teas Commission on Environmental Quality, has developed a short, simple animation of a typical wastewater treatment process that you can conveniently view online. Watch the simulation at
www.gbra.org/wastewater-treatment.swf to see how water used in homes and businesses is stringently treated to remove pollutants before being safely discharged back into rivers and streams. This reclamation and reuse of water stretches the supply in an environmentally safe manner.
