To help the community understand the urban water cycle and the processes behind it, the nonprofit coordinated a tour of Asheville's wastewater treatment plant with the Metropolitan Sewerage District of Buncombe County.
The tour, scheduled for Tuesday, June 4, at 10 a.m., will be open to adolescent groups with children older than 11, interested adults and the general public.
Bauman says the group will be limited to 20 people and will probably take about 1 ½ hours.
The urban water cycle, Bauman explains, goes like this: The uptake of water from the drinking water reservoir is treated and distributed to the county.
It is then filtered, purified and distributed throughout the community.
After that, it is piped through a sewer to the MSD plant and treated before it is released into the river.
The tour will help people understand what happens to water, Bauman says, "when you're running the sink or taking a shower or flushing a toilet, and where that water goes from there and how is it treated before it's put back in its natural source."
