Another splendid day out in the Northumberland countryside with a view to finding as many quarries as possible explored with Catbalou enjoyed your company and thanks for doing the driving again. As Cat said in her report some of these quarries are listed as inactive or active really you dont actually find out till you get there this one was i believe an inactive one but was far from it when we got there what with cctv and pir,s all over the place which appeared switched on and very much working. That said the processing plant for this place appeared to be almost redundant a bit rusting in places etc.

that where the "Deep Active Sludge" resided, im assuming.. as well as thin ice / danger / keep off / warning / and general "p off, go away" signs were? a tad 'overkill' perhaps!

great photos there and superb day out... need a revisit to the other site? with tripod this time

Did a little research on the Wiki .."The activated sludge process was discovered in 1913 in the United Kingdom by two engineers, Edward Ardern and W.T. Lockett ."Activated sludge is a process for treating sewage and industrial wastewaters using air and a biological floc composed of bacteria and protozoa. "
Hmm...not exactly a tasty soup that you'd want be in ! The Good part is if it's in operation, the "air" part makes the pond a giant "fizzy". ...another trip to the internet ...

The presence of bubbles does reduce a person’s buoyancy in water because air is less dense than water however some bouoyancy does remain so the person could still swim. If the person tired to float they would not be as high in the water. While experiments have shown that massive release of gasses (bubbles) can sink vessels, the amount is very large. We don’t aerate basins with that much air!
An exception would be a very lean person who is negatively buoyant in water anyhway. He/she would definitely be less well off in the presence of bubbles."
so all you skinny folk better start drinking beer so if you fall in a "deep active sludge" pond you won't sink !! ;)

p.s. ... gad, am i bored ...:D
