Vermont’s governor proclaimed May 23 as the state’s Water Quality Day, according to the Burlington Free Press.
With the proclamation, wastewater facilities across Vermont were open to visitors. Those touring the treatment plants saw firsthand the transformation water makes from the mucky state it’s in upon arrival to its clean and drinkable state after treatment.
The governor says water treatment plants are important to all citizens of Vermont. Establishing a Water Quality Day helps bring the out-of-sight work they do into focus.
