Dive Into Wastewater Treatment
South Fort Collins Sanitation District treats the water that comes out of customer’s taps and runs down their drains 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for the purpose of producing the highest quality reclaimed water possible. Water reclamation is an important service but often has some confusion surrounding it. Our hope is to help kids learn more about the wastewater treatment process and how they can make simple changes in their lives to support our natural areas. The resources below can be used by anyone to learn more about what constitutes wastewater, how it is treated and where it goes from there. We hope you find it interesting to learn about the journey of your water once it heads down the drain!
