ASCE water Treatment Plant visit

22 February 2019


ASCE Student Chapter at BAU-Tripoli branch made a field trip to “Tripoli Treatment Plant” on Friday February 22, 2019 in El-Bahsass. The students were accompanied by a group of Civil Engineering faculty. The plant discharges about 70,000 m3/day of fresh water to Tripoli city. The students were able to visualize a backwashing process of the filtration tanks together with the different processes involved in water treatment from coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation and disinfection to have the water clean from any collides and bacteria for safe public use.
