    and bacterial colonies settle out of the water This water looks clean enough to drink but it is not drinking water After we disinfect the water we will put it in the river Some of the sludge that is collected goes to digesters where microorganisms digest it and produce methane gas This gas is used to generate electricity for the plant The rest of the sludge is returned to the

    wastewater will be flowing into the Rio Grande the next step is to make sure that there are not any harmful microorganisms in the water Instead of using dangerous chemicals like chlorine to kill the microorganisms we use ultraviolet UV light to kill the bacteria and germs The light sterilizes the microorganisms so that they cannot make new microorganisms Learn more about ultraviolet light ABCWUA Opens UV Light Disinfection Facility

    our guts We keep the digesters at 98 degrees Fahrenheit because digesters are something like giant concrete guts As the bacteria eat they create methane gas Orange pipes carry that methane gas to our Cogen power plant where we use it to make electricity When the bacteria have eaten everything they die and what is left is called biosolids We send the biosolids to our Soil Amendment Facility Learn more
