A local homeschool group got an up-close look at the Prineville Water Treatment Plant. The plant operators serving as tour guides showed the kids how they can control and monitor each aspect of the plant through a single computer program, and make changes if they need to. The group walked through the plant and followed the water treatment process from start to finish. They were able to see and feel a real filter and membrane. The students asked lots of great questions along the way.
After the tour, they participated in hands-on activities including creating a water cycle wristband and a water filtration system, plus, they compared toilet paper to "flushable" wipes in a flush test.
