45 students joined the Water Treatment plant tour. The day began with a presentation of the system at the High School, followed by the tour. We were unable to tour the wastewater (WW) facility due to stronger than usual odors. This brought on the idea of having a virtual WW plant tour for future events. Lunch was provided by Saint Regis Mohawk Tribe, followed by trivia and prizes.

This event was enjoyed by all attendees and discussion has already begun on planning for next years.
