RECAP: “It’s kind of amazing what exists under a manhole cover.” #FollowTheFlow
In a whirlwind of scents, sludge, and sights seen by few other eyes, Infrastructure Week last week allowed visitors and followers an underground behind-the-scenes look at the sewers that help make clean water possible.
“It’s kind of amazing what exists under a manhole cover,” as WCPN’s Anne Glausser put it as she peered down the century-old depths of a brick-and-mortar sewer line. And those are the reactions our #FollowTheFlow events were designed to inspire.
Several local media outlets covered the events and allowed glimpses into the murkey depths of the wastewater treatment network under your feet.
