I spent the afternoon at Cecil B. Wood Water Treatment Plant in Roswell Georgia. The Water Treatment Plant was commissioned in 1935 at a rated capacity of 300,000 gallons per day. In 1970, the plant was upgraded to produce a rate of 600,000 gallons per day. In 1990, the water plant was upgraded to its present rated capacity of 1.2 million gallons per day. I always enjoy learning about water. This is the second annual tour of the plant, and I was able to attend last year as well. Keeping up with the local water treatment methods (both uptake & discharge) and locations is vital to understanding the larger picture in Regards to Water Use & Water Conservation. Today, I toured the Plant with my colleague Tony, and we both were awed as Mike Leonard, Water Operations Manager showcased the latest in Water Filtration technology. The Software and computer monitoring were impressive to say the least. We also learned that Caustic Soda, Chlorine, Fluoride, Sand, Charcoal, Gravel, and Aeration all played a part in the Filtration process at this Water Uptake & Filtration Plant.

Water has always fascinated me. Where does it come from, where does it go? How do we clean it? What does dirty water mean? How do we maintain a steady supply of healthy drinking water to millions of people daily?
Many people ask the same questions. I seek to find answers. In my 3.5 years in Fulton County, I have sought to understand the Water Systems, both intake and discharge. This has led me on a long winding journey of ecological awareness. Today was another piece.
Years back, and while in Architecture School, I studied intensively Conventional & Unconventional WasteWater Treatment, the Local Aquifer System, and the impact of Modern Development. The Result was a project called the PURE Museum which sought to provide a Holistic Sustainable Solution to these issues, but more importantly, it further embraced and reflected my dedication to a career in GREEN ARCHITECTURE, by respecting and understanding the local ecology & hydrology.
My Journey continues. An exciting new day is always ahead!
