CHASES POND

RAW WATER

STRAINING

 

Pond water is withdrawn from Chase’s Pond through a pipe located in an underwater intake structure protected by a concrete box located just off the bottom of the pond.  The pond water travels through the pipe into the nearby screen house building near the dam which has large screens to physically prevent and remove large pieces of debris (leaves /sticks/ chunks) and living species  (fish and amphibians) from entering and potentially clogging the treatment process.  This is essentially “straining” the water as it first enters the treatment process.
