05/10/07 - There are still a limited number of spaces available on the fascinating “Wonder of Water” tour to be held this Saturday, May 12, 2007, beginning at 9:00 A.M. This free tour of the City’s water system begins at the Grassy Waters Preserve South Side Nature Center, located at 8537 Northlake Boulevard.
This popular educational program is free, and includes great behind-the-scenes tours of Grassy Waters Preserve, the Water Treatment Plant, the Wastewater Treatment Plant, Apoxee Park, and the City’s award-winning Wetlands-Based Water Reclamation Project.
The Wonder of Water tour is a great way for the public to learn about the City’s water supply, water conservation, and the fragile state of our water supply as it relates to the environment. The topics covered in this tour are especially important given our current drought.
The tour concludes at approximately 2:00 P.M. Transportation between the various tour locations is provided, as is lunch. Reservations are required, and can be made by calling (561) 804-4985.
