All of the information, none of the smell. Virtually explore the Jones Island Water Reclamation Facility. Your nose will thank you!
From September 26th to October 11th take a free virtual tour of the Jones Island Water Reclamation Facility, see how we clean wastewater, how Milorganite is made, and what you can do at your home to manage water where it falls as part of Historic Milwaukee’s Doors Open 2020. Join us to learn something new about the water you use every day! Some of the highlights include:
Ever wonder what happens to the water from your toilet or shower at home? How does all that water get cleaned? Come explore these questions and more on a virtual tour of Jones Island Water Reclamation Facility! This virtual tour includes information on the history of Jones Island, the wastewater treatment process, and how you can help protect this precious resource.
Receive Water Drop Alert text messages when heavy rain threatens the area. When a Water Drop Alert has been issued a reminder is sent to use less water until the rain passes.
What do you do when an alert is issued?
Get FREE water by the barrel from your roof and use it when it’s dry outside to use in your landscape. Rain barrels help keep excess water out of the sewer system and help reduce water pollution.
Any items flushed other than toilet paper can create costly clogs in your home pipes, our community sewer pipes, and our water reclamation facilities. Learn what items you should not flush down your toilet.
