The 3D EnviroScape Drinking Water/Wastewater model traces the path of the water we use in our communities. Participants are captivated by the hands-on demonstration as they draw real water from the river and to send to the water treatment plant for processing. Follow the clean water as it is delivered under the removable roadways for our residential and commercial uses. Follow the wastewater from the houses and commercial buildings to the wastewater treatment plant and see the treated water returned back into the river. Even a section on biosolids, septic tanks and stormwater. Three individual demonstrations provided -- Drinking Water Sources & Treatment, Wastewater Treatment, and What Biosolids are and how they are being used or disposed. This teaching model communicates to all ages (children to adults)!
• Septic system and rural water sources
• Stormwater discharged directly to a waterbody OR sent on to the wastewater treatment plant; and
• Demonstration of a combined sewer overflow
