'CLEAN WATER UNIVERSITY' (CWU)
For the last couple years team members have been involved with a free program offering through the City of Springfield & the Metropolitan Wastewater Management Commission (MWMC) Rachel Chilton & Amber Fossen, Public Information & Education Specialists, Have been our past guest instructors. While the classes are designed for Springfield District 5th graders during a regular school day, it has been geared for Guy Lee Green Team in a fun after-school setting. Due to the nature of some of the lessons that require a dual prep & lab, we had some Thursday/Friday meetings last year along with a field trip to the waste water treatment facility.
The city is looking to streamline the CWU program & reduce the number of future sessions.
2015-16 Green Team not participating in CWU due to program changes.
We have been invited to tour the Waste Water Treatment Facility.
