Water Treatment Plant Tour…sounds interesting

Thanks to the News-Herald for this reminder:

“On May 18, the Lake County Department of Utilities is hosting an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at its Aquarius Water Treatment Plant, 38265 Aquarius Parkway in Willoughby.

The Utilities Department encourages visitors to register in advance at Aquarius Water Tours, but walk-ins are welcome.

The event is free and open to the public, and features plant tours, familyfriendly activities, handson demonstrations, exhibits, and a “touch-a-truck” area that showcases many of the service and construction vehicles needed to maintain over 550 miles of

underground water main, according to a news release.

The plant became operational and began producing finished water on Jan. 1, 1985. Although the plant has the capacity to treat 20 million gallons of clean drinking water per day, it currently produces roughly 9 million gallons per day, to approximately 80,000 residents in seven western Lake County communities, the release stated.”

(LFC Comment: We are planning to take this tour.  We would like to ask  about the addition of fluoride to our water.

Here is a link to the Lake County government website that gives a written explanation of how the water pumped from Lake Erie is treated. [highlight and right click to go to the site]
