2nd Graders Visit the Water Treatment Plant

2nd grade students took a very interesting field trip to the Dubuque Water Treatment Plant!  The water treatment plant is located next to Sutton Pool, down by the river. Students got to see how the water is tested, cleaned, moved through the different parts of the plant and then sent out to the people of Dubuque.  Thank you for hosting our students for this great field trip!
