                       water or wastewater, comprising: subjecting the water or wastewater to                  
                       treatment by flocs ballasted by granular material and directing the water

                       and degreasing the water or wastewater within the coagulation,                          
                       flocculation and sediment devices and eliminating at least 20% of hexane                
                       extractable material from the water or wastewater without subjecting the                
                       water or wastewater to flotation degreasing means.
