Thank you for your interest in a tour!
Logistics and Planning. Assuming it is a school tour, here are the typical considerations:
- Date and time. Please provide dates and times when you would like to schedule the tour. Include optional (Plan B) times if the first date is unavailable. The site closes at 3:30 PM.
- Length. How long you can stay on the site? Tours less than 1 hour tend to be rushed. Please plan for at least 90 minutes once on site. Tours will be longer if there are multiple groups.
- Amount and age. The number and age range of the students/participants
- Educational goals. Any background about what they are studying that would make them want to visit a wastewater treatment plant (e.g., adv placement, watershed studies, biology class, general water, etc.)
On your end:
- Teachers/chaperones. We’ve found it’s best to split students into groups of 10 to 12. This way they can hear the tour guide and stay focused. For students under the age of 13 we request one teacher or chaperone per group. This help students with staying focused, not wandering off and not touching equipment.
- Legalities. Below are the links for the required request and liability forms. While it is acceptable to bring them the day of the tour, they do need to be submitted.
- Cellular service. Cell signals are very weak here at the plant. So plan for logistical calls ahead of time.
- Avoid Google Maps. Google map directions are not accurate for this site. Please download the map below.
- Accident avoidance. Be very careful when turning off Hwy 1 onto our access road. It is a sharp right turn immediately at the end of the metal guard rail as you finish crossing the river. There is no room to taper off of Hwy 1 and drivers behind you will not expect anyone to slow down there.
- Minimum age. The plant is an industrial site with many elevated platforms. To prevent falls, children younger than third grade are typically not allowed as they can fall through the railings.
