The City of Anacortes is hosting a Public Works Open House on Friday, May 29, 2015, from 9 am until 3:30 pm, at the city's award winning Wastewater Treatment Plant at 500 T Avenue. 

This event provides an opportunity for the community to see firsthand the systems and equipment that maintain the outstanding quality of life that we enjoy in Anacortes! Students and community members will be able to ride in our street sweeper and garbage trucks, and operate surveying equipment.

The City’s camera truck crew will demonstrate its abilities to view underground pipes. Attendees will be able to operate our equipment used for locating buried pipes and utilities.

The city's state of the art Wastewater Treatment Plant will be open for tours that illustrate the importance of biology, chemistry, and physics in the processing of “you know what” into water that is nearly drinkable and ready for discharge into the Guemes Channel. 

There will be energy conservation exhibits, and wokers will conduct jar testing. “What is jar testing?” It is a process used by the Water Treatment Plant, called coagulation/flocculation, which is done prior to filtering the water that comes out of our faucets.
