Quotes

...provide input on what methods will be proposed and evaluated to control turbidity in these important waterways," DEC Commissioner Joe Martens said. "DEC will engage the public in every step of this process."
...claims and junk scienceWater Liberty (Adya Clarity) even makes outrageous claims that imply the high-aluminum formula can prevent cancer, saying, "proven to remove accumulated carcenogenic [sic] heavy metals and toxins from your body by as much as 40% -- cancer-causing contaminants such as mercury, lead, arsenic, aluminum, and more!" But the so-called "research" upon which this is based is clearly fraudulent (see below)
"However, separation of the biological flocs from the mixed liquor in the secondary clarifier is difficult because the biological flocs are only marginally heavier than water, and therefore settle slowly. As a result, the secondary clarifier of a typical activated sludge process is often the bottleneck in most wastewater treatment processes that utilize activated sludge as a secondary process. The crucial solids separation step of the biological flocs from the mixed liquor in the secondary clarifier is therefore typically the rate limiting process which is governed by a variety of factors, most notably the specific gravity, or density, of the biological flocs."
