Ducks on the Ponds

Ducks on the Ponds

Ducks have found a stopping point at the City of North Royalton (Ohio) Wastewater Treatment Plant B. They land in the aeration tanks, and cold early-spring weather doesn’t seem to bother them.

“It started with small numbers 23 years ago after an expansion, and the numbers have grown every year,” says operator III Dennis Few. “First it was just one aeration tank, but as the years passed the population grew and spilled into two tanks and then finally all three tanks as well as the three final clarifiers.

“I’ve worked for three municipalities and seven plants, but I’ve never seen ducks on aeration tanks until I came here. I’ve always been curious if other operators have seen something like this.”
