Sustainable Environment Projects
There is no other time in our history that has produced such a nexus of events driving education, economics, innovation, business, health care, social justice, technology and leadership than today. In every century this can be said but yet, the elements today significantly place a shift as technology, innovation, energy and globalization are hallmarks of this age. Globalization are not as explorers of the past but as synthesized economies that are pegged to one another through dynamic markets. The confluence of these moving parts is the recipe for sustainability thinking.
Let's first begin by distilling some facts.
Sustainability is only for energy and environmental solutions: Sustainability is a process for capturing all internal and external resources for optimization. Organizations can limit sustainability to energy, energy efficiency, environment, carbon capture, emissions but more so, sustainability distills down the simplest node of an organization for effectiveness.
Sustainability is perceived as a big or large organizational construct: Sustainability can be used by a one man shop or a transnational corporation. The differences are represented by their ecosystem and supply chain. Sustainability identifies stakeholders, ecosystem and supply chains across platforms, systems and processes for a new lens to durability, longevity and profitability.
Sustainability is for people who believe in green. Sustainability are for people who believe in considering tomorrow in their present operations. If you as a leader have an organization that you consider only today and tomorrow is not relevant then yes, sustainability is not for you. Sustainability is a working mechanism aggregating and defining elegant solutions.
Sustainability is not used by technology companies. Technology companies are indeed driven by sustainability as the torrent of data, systems, energy and innovation push out and into these organizations. Consider, Google, Yahoo and more who have formed alliances to determine how to gain energy, solutions and requirements to service their systems for tomorrow. These companies are tooling to build smart grid solutions that indeed will aid other surrounding organizations producing sustainable solutions.

Water Treatment Plant
The Pre-Sedimentation Building is where the treatment process really begins. The raw water from the settling pond is lifted 240 feet up to the water treatment plant. The 5 major unit processes include chemical coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration, and disinfection. Water sources are subject to contamination and require appropriate treatment to remove disease-causing agents. Public drinking water systems use various methods of water treatment to provide safe drinking water for their communities. Today, the most common steps in water treatment used by community water systems (mainly surface water treatment) include:
Coagulation and Flocculation:
are often the first steps in water treatment. Chemicals with a positive charge are added to the water. The positive charge of these chemicals neutralizes the negative charge of dirt and other dissolved particles in the water. When this occurs, the particles bind with the chemicals and form larger particles, called floc.
During sedimentation, floc settles to the bottom of the water supply, due to its weight. This settling process is called sedimentation.
Once the floc has settled to the bottom of the water supply, the clear water on top will pass through filters of varying compositions (sand, gravel, and charcoal) and pore sizes, in order to remove dissolved particles, such as dust, parasites, bacteria, viruses, and chemicals.
After the water has been filtered, a disinfectant (for example, chlorine, chloramine) may be added in order to kill any remaining parasites, bacteria, and viruses, and to protect the water from germs when it is piped to homes and businesses.
