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)!

Personally, I am so excited to be able to use this model with the students of Allentown, PA, because I know that most of our student population is not really sure where their drinking water is coming from and where it goes to. I have had such success using the traditional model and I know this will really enrich their learning experience! EnviroScape has been such a hit since I began using it 20 years ago!

The Drinking Water/Wastewater Enviroscape model is a fabulous tool for teaching about how water cycles through the community and flows to the next community. Students love lifting the roads to see the water and wastewater pipes leading to/from their homes and businesses. It is really an eye-opener for students and adults alike.
