Wastewater Treatment Facility Tours
Plant tours are available for free as a public service. Arrangements must be made in advance by calling the plant at 607-273-8381. Group size is generally limited to a maximum of 25. It is easiest for us to accommodate tours that start between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays. Children as young as 10 can be taught about basic plant processes. For reasons of safety, all children must have adequate adult supervision. Infants should not be brought to the plant.
Tours typically take an hour and 15 minutes to an hour and a half. They can be given as a general overview or can be tailored to meet the special interests of your group. A typical tour spends 45 minutes in the plant's control room and laboratory with the remainder spent walking around the plant, both inside and out. Please do not wear flip-flops, sandals, or high heels and be sure to bring clothing suitable for the weather.
We look forward to helping you and your group better understand what is involved in cleaning municipal and industrial wastewater.
