Investigating Water After The Flush: Field Investigation

Find out what happens “after the flush” as you investigate the path wastewater takes through a municipal wastewater recycling facility. Participants follow the flow of wastewater through SAWS Steven M. Clouse Water Recycling Center, getting off the bus at key locations for a closer look (and smell!) at the water recycling process.

Program Length: 2 hours

Maximum Number of Students: One bus load. (The tour is a driving tour and only one bus can be accommodated at a time.)
