A Tour To Saint Petersburg’s Wastewater Treatment Plant

Posted on November 23, 2010 by team


An excursion to the South-West Wastewater Treatment Plant in Saint Petersburg.


The tour started from the underground.

-6th floor.

-7th floor.

Lots of different things are flushed into canalization. Here is a little museum containing things found there.

In the central control room.

The work of dispatcher is very important notwithstanding everything being automated.

Saint Petersburg is the first megalopolis in the world, where all the wastewater is being treated with ultraviolet. New York is going to become the second one in 2011.

In local dining hall everything is tasty and inexpensive.

After the SWWTP we went to the new water supply station. One of its blocks has been recently opened and there advanced manufacturing sciences are used.

The monument to those who worked here during the World War II.

“K-6″ water purification block is one the most up-to-date in Russia.

Practically everything here works automatically.

Biomonitoring system, in which crayfishes are involved. They are very sensitive to the purity of water and can be good testers.

Saint Petersburg Water Museum.

Lavatory pan, bottom view.

An old toilet bowl for the rich.

Wooden pipes.

The monument to a water carrier – long time ago, when there was no water supply, they were selling water from different rivers. Water from the Neva River was considered to be the best.

      A lot of ‘em are using their iPod/ cell phones instead of socially interacting with each other, makes you fear where society is headed when we isolate ourselves from the person next to you.

    Yep, before I drink any water, I put a crayfish in it. If it doesn’t die in 1 min., I pull it out and gulp the H2O down.

    Sorry but, New York has already been using ultraviolet for years to treat their effluent. Nice treatment plant, I especially like the museum! You should do a part two and show more of the plant and its primary, secondary and settling processes. Do they press out their sludge or incinerate it and turn it into plant energy?

  6. Kilroy Was Here says:

    Very impressive. Now we need to get the third world countries to start treating their waste.

    I thought that guy in the statue was a “honey wagon” driver!
