From Gray Water to Great Water!

Clean water is critical for sustaining life and health of any community. Once wastewater “disappears” down sinks, toilets, floor drains or other outlets, it doesn’t actually disappear. It flows through a network of underground sewer pipes making its way to water reclamation facilities where it is cleaned and safely reused and/or released back to the environment. During this half-day tour, participants will tour the Fargo Wastewater Treatment facility to see all these steps and ways wastewater is used to further industry in the area. The tour will also include an update on the FM Area Diversion project. The tour begins and ends in Fargo. More information will be posted when it is available. For questions or to register, contact Julie Ellingson at 701-223-8332 or jellingson@ndwater.net. ...
