This presentation will give a general overview of how and why wastewater from your home is collected and subsequently treated. The presentation will follow the path of wastewater from your home back into the environment. This complex journey is many times forgotten after a person has flushed a toilet, washed dishes or laundry, brushed his or her teeth, etc. It should provide a better understating of this critical service that is provided by the DSM.
