Composition Exercise
Fill in the gaps with the words or expressions in bold used in the model essay above.

The diagram illustrates the process by which surface water from places such as lakes reaches our faucet.  Overall, the diagram indicates ten stages that clean, filter and disinfect the water to make it safe to use.

To begin with, lake water passes through intake screens to remove any large pieces of waste that may block the pipe.  After that, pumps push it on into a flash mix chamber where the additives Polyaluminium Chloride and oxidants are mixed with the water.  Following that, the water passes through a fourth flocculation stage and on to a settling basin where it is allowed to sit for some time, so that gravity may cause contaminants as dirt and mud to settle.

Once settling is complete, Chlorine is added to the water to further purify it, then passed on through a fine filter membrane which removes any remaining minor contaminants from the supply.  Subsequently, the liquid is disinfected with three substances: Chlorine, Lime (or sodium hydroxide) and fluoride before finally being pumped to our homes and faucet.
