PA-AWWA and NJ-AWWA YP Committees holds Landis Sewer Authority Tour and Parvin State Park Camp out
Written by Eloise Gibby
Dennis Palmer, Executive Director of the Landis Sewerage Authority, hosted a tour for seven young professionals on Friday August 2nd, 2019. The tour began with an introduction to the plant process and infiltration basin discharge design.
The group toured the plant process equipment as well as the laboratory.
The tour continued as YPs hopped on to a tractor-towed hayride. The group saw the forestry projects that Landis maintains on plant property and learned about controlled-burns. The hayride dropped the tour off back at the plant and the group boarded a school bus.
The school bus took the YPs to the farm where Landis grows grains that become feed for livestock.
At the end of the tour, Mr. Palmer answered any questions from the YPs. After the tour, YPs met up at Parvin State Park for a campout.
