Did you know that the City of Greater Sudbury Water/Wastewater Services hosts tours of all the Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants in the community throughout the year? EarthCare Sudbury’s Water Month is the perfect time to book one of these tours, whether you are a teacher, part of an organization or a member of the general public. 

Groups can book a tour at any of the following Water/Wastewater facilities in the City of Greater Sudbury:

Sudbury (David Street) Water Treatment Plant
Wanapitei Water Treatment Plant
Azilda Wastewater Treatment Plant
Chelmsford Wastewater Treatment Plant
Coniston Wastewater Treatment Plant
Dowling Wastewater Treatment Plant

The newly renovated Sudbury Wastewater Treatment Plant is the best suited location for tours with children 10 years of age under. 

Individuals or groups from the general public can call to schedule a tour to mark 2015 World Water Day on Sunday, March 22. 

Visit a Water or Wastewater Treatment Plant and find out where our water comes from and where it goes! Every participant will observe the various wastewater plant processes and learn how water is treated before being released into the environment. Visitors will also receive a free FOG Bucket, a container to trap and dispose of household FOG: Fats, Oils and Grease. Children will receive a free “Every Drop Counts” blue flex ruler!

EarthCare Sudbury’s Water Month celebrates the precious resource of water. Browse the EarthCare Sudbury site at for ways to conserve water, protect water sources, prevent sewer backups and enjoy our “City of Lakes.” Canada Water Week and International Water Day are both celebrated in March, a great time to explore water initiatives in the City of Greater Sudbury.
