Primary treatment removes readily settleable solids and floating material such
as soap and grease residues, matches, leaves, paper, etc... The Glens Falls
plant is designed for removal efficiencies of 30% for BOD and 60% for TSS. At
this plant there are four primary clarifiers. Each of the clarifiers is 24 feet
wide by 93.5 feet long by 10 feet deep.
