Easy to read map of a waste water treatment plant. People are sometimes curious as to where debris goes when it exits their homes. Some people might think once they flush and put something down their drains it’s magically gone, well think again. Lots of hard work goes into separating sewage and water. Water that we use is recycled and we eventually use it again.

“NEW YORK, New York- Metro Water Works officials are again asking residents to not flush their exotic pets into the city’s sewer systems. “We end up losing a few sanitation workers to Post-Traumatic-Stress-Syndrome every year, after they open up a manhole and out comes a nine-foot alligator,” said Harris Goldberg. “Crocs and ‘gators may go down the toilet as little bitty things. But when our guys see ’em they are much bigger and really hacked off about having to live down there.”
Did you know that ceiling fans work both summer and winter. If you live in a non air conditioned place it’s very important you install a ceiling fan or even multiple if you can. It is also important to have ceiling fans in places with central air conditioning. Not only can you keep the temperature higher in your home but you can keep the electricity bill down. The fan will circulate the cooler air throughout the room.
On the side of the ceiling fan there is a reversing switch. Make sure the switch is in the right spot during the different seasons. If the fan is not marked, just remember that clockwise is for summer. Also, always have the fan stopped before switching the switch. Stay cool in the months to come and hope these tips have helped.
