A History and Overview of Water Treatment at the City’s Environmental Operations Park

Presentation and Tour

Saturday, February 16

Presentation:  1:00-2:00 pm        

Ethel H. Berger Center

Wastewater treatment isn’t something most people like to think about, but it is vital to protect public health.  Did you know that buildings from the City’s first wastewater treatment facility are still standing in Sierra Vista’s historic West End?  Did you know that the City once used treated effluent to grow alfalfa?  What does the City do with its effluent today?  From the West End, to harvesting alfalfa, to the single-most important recharge project in our region, come hear about the history and future of wastewater treatment operations from the City’s Public Works Director, Sharon Flissar. Then meet her at the EOP for a tour following the presentation.
