Water Treatment Research
So they have a pilot water treatment plant that intercepts water on its way to the city treatment plant. The city treatment plant processes the water and sends it out to the people to use. The water is good after it is treated and the treatment plant for the city works great. However, plants like that are expensive. The real problem with water in
There are four slow sand filtration beds which work in parallel. I will be setting different parameters for the beds and periodically testing the water produced at different depths of the sand filters. I will also be running different tests on the water as it enters and exits the pre-filtration gravel bed. There is unfortunately only one of these so I will have to test one scenario at a time. I will be taking the water samples back to labs at 2iE and running test for physical, chemical and, biological.
So I really like what I get to do. The first couple of weeks are going to be spent with me reading as much as I can on this subject, planning a timeline for the different tests and project as a whole and getting the pilot plant back online. By the end, Prof. Konate and Maiga hope to write a paper based on the results. Good. Phew, that was a mouthful.
I really look forward to the day when the feelings of anticipation in this post are long gone. Also, for dinner tonight it was spaghetti. The same red sauce, but didn’t care it was excellent. And the flavoring on the rice today at lunch was also different. Much easier to stomach :)
To end this post I will leave you with two thoughts.
1. I seem to have a problem with the air conditioning. With it off I am hot, with it on I am cold. If I turn the air conditioning temperature up a little the air smells funny. So I go through this cycle of turning it on getting cold and then turning it off and getting hot until I have to turn it on again, and the cycle continues…
2. There are geckos everywhere :) I walk around and see them scurrying about or just very tropically chilling on the wall. The building here remind me of the
