How is my water treated?

Springfield’s water undergoes several treatment processes after arriving at the plant and before it is sent to the distribution system. The water treatment process includes coagulation and flocculation (to cause small particles from the raw water to adhere to each other), sedimentation (to remove those particles), chlorination (for disinfection), and filtration (to remove the very smallest particles). Sodium hexametaphosphate is also added to help with corrosion control and stability.
