I'd like to expand tagging of wastewater treatment plants by adding in
clarifiers and digesters to the man_made=wastewater_plant wiki page.
This came about as I was editing an area with a wastewater treatment
facility. I didn't know what the various parts of the facility were
called. A friend who works in GIS for the counties wastewater division
helped me with the terminology for these objects.
The two objects are
1. Clarifiers https://www.dropbox.com/s/k87y9sf144xxylv/clarifier.png?dl=0
2. Digesters https://www.dropbox.com/s/q8jxmgvs8heb314/digester.png?dl=0
According to Wikipedia, clarifiers are settlement tanks that continuously
remove sediment from the wastewater. 
Digesters use a process called anaerobic digestion is used to breakdown
sewage sludge.  since anaerobic digester is used in other processes, I'd
like to keep it simple and just call them digesters.
For tagging, I'd to suggest the two tags.
man_made=clarifier (used 28 times)
man_made=digester (anaerobic used 3 times, including one misspelling)
I'm not sure if clarifier and digester are what the British call them, if
someone knows, please let me know.
