Drinking Water Treatment
Drinking water treatment diagram.
Diagram of Rockville's water treatment process.
Rockville’s Water Treatment Plant withdraws water from the Potomac River and uses a six-step treatment process to ensure that drinking water meets the standards of the Safe Drinking Water Act. The river water is treated to remove suspended sediments, algae, parasites, bacteria and metals. Once treated, the water is sent through a series of underground water lines to your faucet.
