Take a journey through a waste water treatment works, but without experiencing the smell! - with the FREE Clean It Up app from Scottish Water
This game is really fun, easy to play and educational - your challenge is to clean up the waste water. With the aid of retro computer games, you will discover the different treatment stages at a waste water treatment works, and you will help out at 2 of the key stages of a waste water treatment works.
In the ‘screening’ level, your challenge is to remove anything other than the Three P’s (pee, poo and toilet paper), how much of the rubbish that should not have been flushed down the toilet or poured down the sink can you remove from the waste water?
In the ‘activated sludge’ level, you are a good bug (bacteria) and your aim is to remove the remaining organic matter, leaving the water ready to be returned safely to the environment – but watch out for the bad bugs!
Can you clean up the waste water?
Remember – here are some simple things that will help to save your drains and protect the environment. These will help to protect your home, your neighbours and your local environment:
1. put all cooled fat, oil and grease in the bin or recycle it, don’t put it down the sink or drain, and
2. put all wipes and other bathroom waste in the bin, not down the toilet.
