Updated:1 month, 2 weeks ago IST

Tokyo (Japan), Dec 06 (ANI): The Tokyo Metropolitan Government Bureau is making sincere efforts to recycle waste water and keep the city clean. Shibaura Water Reclamation Center is the third oldest Water Reclamation Center in Tokyo. A part of the treated water is cleaned through sand filtration and then used inside the Center for cleaning facilities, cooling machines and flushing toilets. The generated sludge is pumped through pressure pipelines to the Nanbu Sludge Plant for treatment. With the use of microorganism the dirt sinks to the bottom and water is gradually clean up. In a Secondary Sedimentation Tank, activated sludge masses formed in the reaction tank are precipitated for 3 to 4 hours, resulting in the separation of a supernatant (treated water) and sludge. The water, which was originally sewage, is processed and thus becomes clean. One of features of Shibaura Water Reclamation Center is Reclaimed Water Utilization Project contributing to recycling-oriented city. There is large volume of treated water, with stable water quality, so it can be used effectively as reclaimed water. A reclaimed water production facility operates with ceramic used in filtering material in reclaimed water treatment process. This helps meet growing demand for such as toilet water. Efforts of Tokyo Metropolitan Government are praiseworthy for its commitment towards providing safe recycled water.
