Journalism with impact

I want to receive independent, investigative local news every day.

Following the wastewater spill on the French Broad River last week, RiverLink is coordinating with the Metropolitan Sewage District of Buncombe County to host a tour of the wastewater treatment plant at 10 a.m. on June 4.

Truth delivered daily

The tour is available to any adolescent groups over the age of 11 (school groups, clubs, extracurricular groups, etc.), interested adults and the general public who wish to become more acquainted with the dynamics of, processes behind and impacts associated with the local urban water cycle, spanning from its initial use to its journey back to the French Broad River through Asheville’s wastewater infrastructure. Participants will meet at the MSD facility located at 2028 Riverside Drive.

The tour is free of cost but space is limited, so pre-registration is necessary. For questions about the RiverLink Urban Water Cycle program, or to sign up for the tour, please contact either Erik Fraser, education intern, at efraser@unca.edu or (910) 274-1967 or Nikki Bauman, education coordinator, at education@riverlink.org or (828) 252-8474, ext. 18.
