Field Trip #2 - The Sewage Plant

What a stinky field trip!!! Apparently, it would have been far worse had this plant not employed various methods of odor control. As it was, Luke was coughing and gagging quite a few times (it reminded of my brother at the hatchery when we were kids ☺)

Trust me, you do not want to know what was in the bins. 

Pumps, filters...

Sewage at different stages of treatment.
The only alarming part was that I was sure I could feel a "mist" on my legs... GROSS!

My handsome 3rd grader!

Run for your lives.

The most shocking part was that the sewage leaves the plant as fresh water approximately 8 hours after it first arrived!!!

Back at the lab... dirty water magnified... so cool!

The lab technician brought this Hickory Horned Devil down to show the kids.
It was HUGE.
