Plant Field Trip/Wastewater Treatment Plant
biodiesel plant is located at the wastewater treatment
plant. The Biodiesel plant contains the collected
cooking oil, process machines and biodiesel storage tanks.
The plant is not very big and will only take a few minutes
to check out. However, it is worth stopping by to see
how they transform used cooking oil into a usable product (Biodiesel)
and learn about the benefits the program has to our city and
environment. The wastewater plant can be toured to
learn how city wastewater is collected and treated before it
is released back into the environment. The group will
learn how natural processes are used for this clean-up.
If a field
trip is not possible, our environmental education program
will travel. There are presentations for all ages,
pre-school to assisted living facilities. An education
outreach person will come to your location to give a
developmentally appropriate presentation on topics
including: recycling, landfill, anti-litter, or biodiesel.
