Activity: "Build a Sewer Pipeline Challenge"

 

Did you know that we collect 55 million gallons of wastewater in our sewer pipes every day? Our engineers designed a pipeline system so that most of the wastewater flows to our Wastewater Treatment Plant using nothing but gravity. Sounds easy? This activity will help you understand how challenging it can be!
