Wastewater Treatment Poster Contest
Poster Contest Theme
Ever wonder where the water from your sinks, showers, bathtubs, toilets, washing machines and dishwashers goes when it leaves your home? This used water, or "wastewater", must be cleaned before it can be released to the environment. At a wastewater treatment plant, this water is treated to remove dangerous, disease causing bacteria and suspended solids before the remaining water, called effluent, is discharged back to the environment. If not for wastewater treatment, untreated wastewater from our homes and businesses would pollute the lakes and streams that we fish and swim in.
Please Note: The Importance of Wastewater Treatment Poster Contest is undergoing modifications! Please check back in February 2013 for a new poster application form and a description of the rules for the contest.
