Wastewater must go through many steps before it can be released into nature.
Participants of the Prince William County Service Authority’s (PWCSA) Water Academy learned about the wastewater treatment process during a tour of the H.L. Mooney Advanced Water Reclamation Facility in Woodbridge last month.
The Water Academy is a free, five week program that’s held each year.
Where water comes from and what PWCSA does are a couple topics that are covered.
Here is more information about the steps to treat the water (Click on the different stages to see what they look like):
Tours of the plant are offered between 9 a.m. and Noon on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s. Citizens must be at least 10 years old or in fourth-grade to participate.
