Sixth Grade students visited the Whittier Narrows Water Reclamation Plant. 1/15/14

On January 15, 2014, all sixth grade students went on an educational field trip to the Whittier Narrows Water Reclamation Plant. This trip taught us how water is sanitized, and recycled into fresh water that we can drink. We learned that there are three steps to finishing the process of sanitizing waste water. The first process is called primary, which is smelly, dirty water. The second step is called secondary; this step adds bacteria that helps clean the water. The final step is called tertiary; this is the clean water that we drink. This was a really good experience for all of the students to understand the importance of water. We really appreciate how much work these workers put into making fresh clean water that we drink constantly.
