Wastewater Treatment Plant Tour

Our pack took a field trip to our local wastewater treatment plant this week. (It fit in with July’s “H20hhh!” theme.)

It might sound like an odd place to go for a Cub Scout field trip, but it was really pretty neat. Sure, it doesn’t smell like a rose garden, but “gross” places often have an extra appeal for boys.

We got to see lots of machines, tanks, pools, pipes, and sludge. And we learned about the process of taking raw sewage and turning it into water that can be returned to the environment.
