Water Treatment Plant Tour

The Water Treatment Plant tour has been rescheduled to Wednesday, March 4th, 9am-11am.

 

Please fill out the form by NEXT TUESDAY (Feb.17) by 3pm (link below). The professor needs the numbers of everyone interested and able to attend by then, in order to confirm the tour with the plant operators.
I know it’s a month in advance, but I’ll be sure to send out reminders to everyone who signed up! It’ll be a great opportunity to learn more about water treatment plants and see what actually goes on (besides from the pictures you see in your textbooks)!
Anyone in AEES is invited, so sign up by next Tuesday by 3pm! :)
