FC: Water Treatment l by Justin
1: Water treatment is when you take water from used/ dirty places then clean it so it is drinkable again so this is where you get the water then clean it and place it back in the rivers and lakes. | The the factories take in the water and clean it. There are 3 steps in cleaning the water so it can be placed back into the rivers. The first step in water treatment is they take the water and then they use a metal grid to filter any large items such as garbage, Plastic bottles etc. Some materials also settle to the bottom or float to the top so it will be easier for the workers to clean it. The second step is they put the filtered water into a container which already has bacteria in it. The bacteria will make the human waste into solids so they will settle to the bottom and the water will keep going. The last step is they will remove some chemicals such as nitrogen and phosphorus. They use filters like ozone and chlorine to kill the bacteria.
2: An example is in walkerton was when there was a problem with the e-coli contamination. Which made 7 people of walkerton died from the water.
3: Some short term affects were that the gas coming out of the factories can affect the people living in that area because if how dirty it is. When they are making the plant/factories they are really loud and they can be really annoying but after the building it will go away. | Some long terms affect is that animals will die because when you make these plants you will need to cut down a large amount of trees. So animals that live in forest such as birds, bears and bunnies will not be able to find a new home in time and might die. Also it can pollute the air and make the weather change. So it can get more cloudy and can rain more then usually and it can affect peoples way of life and the animals as well. Maybe because they are not used to this much rain around this time. If anything bad does happen in the plant like dirty water the whole area that depends on it will be affected from it.It can also make foundations of the environment get mad. Such as the WWF
4: It affect animals such as animals that live in forests. I.E bears, Squirrels. It will also pollute the air making the weather change suddenly and the animals might not be able to adapt fast enough to the change. So some of them can die easily. | It can also affect the environment because the factories might take up a lot of space so places will be more crowed then before. | It also affects people because majority of people live around the city it can make them feel annoyed because the building of the factories and the working of it can disturb them. A good thing is that the new factory might provide some people with jobs. And not everyone will enjoy it but some people might just ignore it and live with it. Also it can change the peoples way of life like if something bad happens. Like the building collapse or some hazardous waste comes out they can make people change and get mad also.
5: Since these factories are all around the cities people can get sick from the factories gases, liquids that might leak out. For example where they clean the water are like lake Ontario. Which is in the middle of downtown Ontario which is an city. Where a lot of people live and can affect the buildings. | This method is fairly safe because they use things like filters and chemicals to clean the water. Also the chemicals that they use are usually kill the chemicals in dirty water that can harm us. SO they use chemicals that wont effect us which makes it safe for us to drink most of the time. Sometimes things can happen in the plant and make the water all dirty.

22: AT THE START of the Rattanakosin or Bangkok period in the late eighteenth century, when the capital was finally settled at Bangkok, an elephant kraal was established in Krabi by order of Chao Phraya Nakorn (Noi), the governor of Nakhon Si Thammarat, which was by then a part of the Thai Kingdom. He sent his vizier, the Phra Palad, to oversee this task, which was to ensure a regular supply of elephants for the larger town. So many followers emigrated in the steps of the Phra Palad that soon Krabi had a large community in three different boroughs: Pakasai, Khlong Pon, and Pak Lao. x | In 1872, King Chulalongkorn graciously elevated these to town status, called Krabi, a word that preserves in its meaning the monkey symbolism of the old standard. The town's first governor was Luang Thep Sena, though it continued a while as a dependency of Nakhon Si Thammarat. This was changed in 1875, when Krabi was raised to a fourth-level town in the old system of Thai government. Administrators then reported directly to the central government in Bangkok, and Krabi's history as a unique entity separated from the other provinces, had begun.
