water treatment

our water in Warrnambool comes from the Colac Otway

  1. Water is collected from rivers, dams or underground, and pumped through pipes to where it is needed.
  2. Raw water from rivers is stored here to allow solid particles to settle to the bottom.
  3. Special chemicals (called alum) are added to help impurities sink to the bottom and be removed.
  4. This process makes impurities settle to the bottom so that they can be removed or Special chemicals are added to float impurities to the surface, so they can be removed.
  5. The water is filtered through different filters (eg: sand filter) to clean the water.
  6. The pH of the water (how acidic it is) is checked and adjusted to the proper level.
  7. The water is disinfected so that it is safe to drink (using chlorine or other methods).
  8. Clean drinking water is stored until it is needed by customers

Ecosystems

today in science we did a sheet on food webs. we had to go onto our laptops and open a program that created food webs. we had to add 8 organisms and connect the food chain.

the organisms i used where: plants, decomposeres, dingo, fox, rabbit, duck, wedge-tailed eagle, snake.

in normal conditions most animals where going up and down and this was to do with the seasons that then affected the animals plant eating animals that then affected all the other animals in some way.

when a cat was introduced to the food web  every other species died but rabbit, duck and plants
