Book a Tour of Greater Sudbury Drinking Water or Wastewater Treatment Plants

Mar 6, 2019

This month, residents and schools are invited to book tours of City of Greater Sudbury Water or Wastewater Treatment Plants in recognition of World Water Day, celebrated on March 22.

These tours are free of charge and are available in English or French.

Over the last few years, hundreds of Greater Sudbury residents of all ages have taken part in the tours to learn about the science behind the water we use and drink.  

Drinking Water or Wastewater Treatment tours can also be tailored to secondary school students and can incorporate specific curriculum-based topics related to chemicals and/or biology.  The careers course tour guide focuses on opportunities in the field, including operators, millwrights, electricians/instrument technicians, mechanics and computer specialists. 

Tour guides can speak about the water and wastewater services offered by the municipality to aid Civic course students studying the three levels of government.
Groups can book a tour at the following facilities:

Sudbury Wastewater Treatment Plant
1271 Kelly Lake Rd., Sudbury

Wanapitei Water Treatment Plant
321 Trans-Canada Highway, Coniston

To book a tour, contact Julie Friel, Manager of Water Treatment for the City of Greater Sudbury by email at or by calling 705-674-4455, extension 4473.
