GWINNETT WATER RESOURCES HOSTS VIRTUAL FESTIVAL EXPLORING SCIENCE OF WASTEWATER TREATMENT
(Lawrenceville, Ga., Oct. 12, 2020) For the entire month of October, Gwinnett Water Resources is hosting the Sewer and Science Spectacular, an online experience exploring the County’s top-ranked wastewater treatment process.
The online program features virtual tours of the Yellow River Reclamation Facility, activities and crafts for kids and virtual panel discussions.
“When we realized that we wouldn’t be able to safely host our annual fall festival, we wanted to make sure residents still had the chance to meet some of our staff and explore the award-winning facilities their water and sewer rates fund,” said John Butler, outreach manager for the Department of Water Resources. “With this virtual experience, there’s something for the whole family to enjoy as they learn about our wastewater treatment process.”
The event also includes virtual panel discussions on water service and the water treatment process. Two of the panels will feature water experts discussing topics in STEM education and career pathways tailored for teachers and students. The other panel is designed for adults and will cover more in-depth topics on the water treatment process. The panels are scheduled for each week through the end of October.
