Screening and filtering
Millions of litres of wastewater are processed at the Gold Bar Wastewater Treatment Plant every day. Everything that goes down the drain eventually reaches the wastewater treatment facility. Each day, almost 8,000 lbs of inorganic solids like rocks, silt, and garbage are filtered, screened and, often manually removed from the system. That’s about the weight of an adult hippopotamus.

Think before you flush
Walking directions: Continue heading towards the river (north) on the paved trail. When you get to a fork on the road, take the gravel path on the left. When you reach the t-intersection at the river, turn left (west). You’ll find your next stop on your left in about 75m.
