Tour Columbia Canal Drinking Water Plant and Metro Wastewater Treatment Plant | Environment
The City of Columbia will be giving a tour of its Columbia Canal Drinking Water Plant and Metro Wastewater Treatment Plant on Friday, March 22 from 1:30 to 5:00 PM. Guests will see how the City's drinking water is made from one of its sources on the Broad River and where it ultimately goes into the Congaree River after being treated at the wastewater treatment plant.
This tour is open to the public, but space is limited to the first 30 registrants. Anyone interested in attending should sign up at COCWaterSewerTour.Eventbrite.com or by calling Victoria Kramer at (803) 545-3227. Due to security regulations at the drinking water plant, all registrants must be able to provide a photo id before the start of the tour.
Participants will meet at the Laurel St. entrance of Riverfront Park at 1:30 PM to board a bus that will take them to both plants. The bus will return them to the Riverfront Park parking lot at approximately 4:45.
