Introducing: Field Trips for Grownups!  Get behind-the-scenes tours of the places – and meet the people – who help our community thrive!  These events are for folks 18+.  We’ll ride the bus to our destination, walk around and see the sites, ask all our burning questions, and make friends with community helpers.  Registration is required as space is limited.

Second stop: the Water Treatment Facility, aka: “Go with the Flow”

When: Wednesday, July 31 •  1:00-3:30 pm

Where: Meet at the Library at 1:00 pm; we’re riding the bus.  *Thanks to Transylvania In Motion for providing us a safe and fun way to get where we’re going!*

Join us for a tour of the Catheys Creek Water Treatment Facility!  The facility was constructed in 1980 and has the capacity to treat up to 2.6 million gallons of water each day.  We’ll learn about the history of the plant, talk about flow numbers and the distribution system.  We’ll tour the facility and learn about the specialized equipment and processes needed for assuring a safe and adequate supply of drinking water for our community.

Registration opens June 1.
