WHO: This event is open to the public as well as community and business organizations, and is meant for all ages.
Every year the Wastewater Services Department hosts Open Houses for the public at the French Creek Pollution Control Centre and the Greater Nanaimo Pollution Control Centre.
The Open Houses have attracted community members young and old to participate in treatment plant tours and learn about important wastewater functions.
Open Houses include: regular tours of the facilities, informative posters, staff to answer questions or express concerns to, activity sheets for children (with prizes!), brochures and pamphlets to take home, refreshments and displays from other community organizations.
Organizations that have attended Wastewater Open Houses in the past include the Nanaimo Recycling Exchange, Green Communities, Georgia Strait Alliance, SYLVIS Environmental, and Vancouver Island University - Forest Resources Technology Program.
