    The Environmental Services Department offers complete tours of our facility to third graders (8 years old) and above. Younger groups are offered an indoor presentation which includes a virtual tour. For safety reasons, these younger groups are not offered the outdoor plant tour.  Groups of minors shall consist of no more than 45 students. Each large group of minors must also include a minimum of 3 chaperones (1 for every 15 students).   Due to staffing limitations, only one group may arrive during any two-hour period.  Our goal is to give your group a safe and interesting tour.

    Groups should expect a visit to last approximately 1.5 hours.  The tour includes an indoor PowerPoint presentation on the wastewater treatment process followed by an outdoor walking tour of the plant.
