Have you ever wondered what happens to the water that goes down your drain after you use it?  Where does it go, how is it treated?   With lots of pictures, we will take you from your home, through the collection system, and to a treatment plant.  This will be an easy way to see a lot of treatment technology and will explain how your sewer rates are used.
