Transcript of To Drink or Not to Drink

By Kalley L, Kasey, Tim, Josh, Nathan & Daniel
Pulp Mill
Site 5 Proposal
Limestone is a sedimentary rock composed largely of the minerals calcite and aragonite. A quarry is a place from which stone or other materials are or have been extracted.
quarries damage the landscape
quarries destroy natural animal habitats
On most factory farms, animals are crowded into relatively small areas; their manure is funneled into massive waste lagoons. These cesspools often break, leak or overflow, sending dangerous microbes, nitrate pollution and drug-resistant bacteria into water supplies.
In feedlots, animals live in tightly confined spaces, fed excessive amounts of unnatural feed, and are given copious amounts of drugs to keep them alive.
Water irrigation from rivers wash a lot of the fertilizer used by farmers which creates a pollution called Eutrophication. The water is washed into our drinking water supply and also some lakes/streams creating an algae bloom.
Agricultural activity
The amount of money invested into a quarry depends on the amount of land, and the amount of plant and machinery.
What we Learned
Drilling holes into the ground to create a quarry will most likely damage underground water sources like auqifiers, artesan wells and water tables.
What we learned
• The pulp and paper industry is one of the most environmentally destructive industries on the planet.
• Raising trees, polluting waterways and destroying precious wildlife habitats.
• Pulp and paper mills that use virgin timber are major generators of hazardous air pollutants, including dioxins.
What I’ve Learned
•tertiary means third in order of level.
•Used to remove physical, chemical, and biological contaminants.
•Water is sufficiently clean when discharged from plants.
•It can further stabilize oxygen demanding substance in the water
•water in tertiary plants have been treated before so it can be able to enter the environment.
•chemicals are treated and most if not all the chemical should be present for they are discharging it back into nature, or in reservoirs
Why Site 4 should NOT be chosen.
Chemicals used to clean the waste can pollute the water and also damage the environment.
Water has been treated more than once.
Why Site 4 should NOT be chosen.
The most environmentally destructive industries in the watershed has a runoff that goes to site 1. Polluting waterways and destroying precious wildlife habitats. They detsroy the forest and use chemicals to purify and clean the wood they use to make paper. The chemicals could possibly go into the runoff straight to site 1.
Close to algae
Hard to extract water
Could be polluted from algae
Close to sample H, which has dirt and sand as sediment.
Is in the middle of algae
Sample G & F include dirt small sticks, green mossy, it also smells like sulfer and rotten eggs.
near agricultural activity.
may be polluted with fertilizer, manure, and chemicals
Minerals in the water
no algae
no chemicals from the farm land
doesn't destroy the environment
easier to clean the water
is not near any of the currents carrying the chemicals from the factories near the lake.
near sample B wich has no sediment, a ph of 7 which is neutral, the water is clear and a light brown.
The sediment from the limestone quarry will flow into the delta into site 3.
Why site 5 should be chosen for the water intake pipe.
The End
By: Kalley, Kasey, Daniel, Tim, Josh, Nathan
We propose that the sand and limestone quarry reduce its hours of working so that there is not as must dust sediment going into the runoff. We also propose a cleanup of some of the algae surrounding our area from site 2.
