Public Works Open House May 31, 2018

PW Open House


The City of Anacortes is hosting a Public Works Open House on Thursday, May 31, 2018 from 9:00 am until 3:30 pm. at our award winning Wastewater Treatment Plant at 500  T Avenue.  This event will provide an opportunity for the community to see firsthand the systems and equipment which maintain the outstanding quality of life that we enjoy in Anacortes!  Students and community members will be able to ride in our street sweeper and garbage trucks, and operate surveying equipment.  The City’s camera truck crew will demonstrate its abilities to view underground pipes.  Students will be able to operate our equipment used for locating buried pipes and utilities.

Our state of the art Wastewater Treatment Plant will be open for tours that will illustrate the importance of biology, chemistry, and physics in the processing of “you know what” into water that is nearly drinkable and ready for discharge into the Guemes Channel.

There will be exhibits on water conservation, recycling, and composting.  We will also conduct jar testing.  “What is jar testing?”  It is a process used by the Water Treatment Plant, called coagulation/flocculation, which is done prior to filtering the water that comes out of our faucets.  Want to know more?  Come to our Open House on May 31st and find out.    

For further information, please contact Sylvia at 360-299-0953.
