Enderby invites residents to facilities

The City of Enderby is offering guided tours of its water and waste water treatment facilities.

The City of Enderby is participating in Drinking Water Week by offering guided tours of its water and waste water treatment facilities.

These tours Thursday will walk residents through how their drinking water reaches their tap and what happens to it once it goes down the drain and into the waste water system.

“Drinking Water Week is a time to celebrate our drinking water resources and educate the public on what we can do to protect these resources.  Showing our community the processes that our drinking water undergoes is critical in raising awareness,” said Mayor Howie Cyr.

The tour of the waste water treatment facility will take place at 10 a.m. at 2308 McGowan St., followed by a tour of the water treatment facility at 700 Railway St. at 11 a.m.

Participants will be provided with food and refreshments.

Drinking Water Week runs from Sunday to Saturday, 2014 and for more information on what you can do to protect our local drinking water resources, visit www.drinkingwaterweek.org or www.facebook.com/OurEnderby.
