PIC: Two eggs you should be glad you didn’t get in your Easter basket

Maybe the Easter bunny knows we work on holidays.

Could these really be Easter eggs inside one of our treatment processes? Could they have survived the journey through the sewer system?

Christen Wood snapped this pic at our Southerly Wastewater Treatment Plant on Sunday. These are first-stage settling tanks that help separate our activated sludge (bacteria and other mostly organic material) from the incoming wastewater. The water flows over these weirs (the narrow walls where the eggs appear to be) and on to the lift station.

From the image, it’s hard to tell if they really are eggs or just some other pastel-colored debris. In either case, it was a surprise on Easter. Said Christen, “I have no idea how they could have gotten there, but it did make me smile!”
