From email from the Middle Colorado Watershed Council:
Have you ever wondered what happens to the dirty water from your shower, laundry and toilet after it goes down the drain? What about the runoff from lawns and gardens, and rainwater and car washing?
The Middle Colorado Watershed Council invites you to join us and the Roaring Fork Conservancy for a tour of Glenwood Springs’ wastewater treatment plant. Trent Mahaffey from the City of Glenwood Springs will give us an in-depth look at the process of treating wastewater and allow its safe return to our rivers and streams.
Treatment processes at the facility include extended aeration with aerobic digesters and oxidation ponds, with odor control provided by air ionization and circulation. Before all effluent is returned to the environment it is even disinfected though an ultraviolet process. Come join us for a free tour of this state of the art facility.
Location: Glenwood Springs Wastewater Treatment Plant, West Glenwood Springs. Find a map to the facility here.
Date: April 27, 2016
Registration Deadline: Registration is required by clicking here. The tour will be limited to 15 participants. For additional information, contact Dan at 970-389-8234.
This workshop is hosted by the City of Glenwood Springs in partnership with the Roaring Fork Conservancy and the Middle Colorado Watershed Council.
