Headworks – where the big stuff is captured

Anything and everything is found in sewage. At the headworks, bars and screens remove the largest solids – things as big as branches, plastics, and rags – and as small as sand and other gritty solids. This is called preliminary treatment. After leaving the headworks, the wastewater continues to move by gravity to primary treatment.
