Amy Lowell, Falmouth's Assistant Wastewater Manager, will guide participants through the Town’s main wastewater treatment facility, outlining the treatment processes and discussing the history and future of wastewater management in Falmouth.
Participants will see some of the microscopic life that thrives in the treatment tanks, the state-of-the-art computer system that monitors the facilities, and view the treatment processes in action.
Not only is wastewater a timely issue on Cape Cod, it's also a great STEM subject. All teachers welcome, K-12. The safari is free.
