Registration for EDM: Water Treatment Plant Tour 2019 is Closed

"What would our lives be like without water?"

Imagine you were to wake up tomorrow morning, and you reach to turn on the water but nothing comes out - there's no water! How would you brush your teeth, or flush the toilet? How would you cook your porridge, or have a morning coffee? Now, think outside of your home. How would firefighters fight fires? How would surgeons and doctors clean the tools they need to help Edmontonians?

Water is essential to life, and it is our job to ensure that water is clean and safe before we send it through thousands of kilometers of pipe to reach all of Edmonton's homes, fire hydrants and hospitals. This tour will give your students an opportunity to learn how we treat water though a fun science experiment where everyone has an opportunity to build their own water filter, and treat a sample of dirty water. Students will also be taken on a short walking tour of the water treatment plant to see the treatment process in action, and on a much larger scale.
