On January 15th, the Young Professional (YP) Committees of PA-AWWA and PWEA jointly sponsored a water treatment plant tour and happy hour networking event.  The event drew over 35 professionals eager to learn about this innovative water treatment plant.

The group visited Pennsylvania American Water’s Norristown Plant in Norristown, PA, which serves a population of approximately 95,000.  A major challenge that plant operations faces is heavily fluctuating levels of turbidity from the plant’s source, the Schuylkill River, during wet weather.   Tour members were given a thorough description of all of the treatment technologies in use at the plant, including the innovative super-pulsators and pre-chlorination with chloramine.

A networking happy hour followed the tour at the Rock Bottom Brewery in King of Prussia, PA where young and experienced professionals were able to interact, make new connections and enjoy some refreshments.  The young professional committees hope to build on top of yet another successful event and increase participation and membership within each organization.
