Filter Plant Tour
6th graders from the Chippens Hill Middle School took a tour of our Water Treatment Plant to learn how we treat raw water so it can be safe for consumption. The students also learned about the water cycle, how water sources can get polluted, why we need to protect our watershed and ways to conserve water. The tours are in conjunction with the schools science curriculum and the tours allow the students to get a hands on opportunity to see not only where their drinking water comes from, but also why it is such a precious natural resource.Today was the 1st of many tours by Bristol 6th Grade students. Thank you to the staff from the Environmental Learning Center for helping us run these tours. The Bristol Water Department and the Environmental Learning Center have been providing tours for Bristol's 6th grade classes for over 15 years.
