Ask A Scientist: About Sewage Treatment & Water Quality

June 26, 2007

Etiquette, schmetiquette. Join a conversation about sewage at a local cafe! Western Lake Superior Sanitary District chemist Tim Tuominen will discuss modern wastewater treatment and water quality as part of Minnesota Sea Grant's "Ask a Scientist" discussion series. The discussions will take place on:

Tuesday, July 3, 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Blue Water Café
20 W Wisconsin Street, Grand Marais, MN
Thursday, July 5, 7 – 8 p.m.
Amazing Grace Bakery and Café
394 S. Lake Ave, Canal Park, Duluth, MN

Modern wastewater treatment facilities can remove most harmful organisms and chemicals from wastewater, but not everything. Find out what might be tainting Lake Superior's remarkably clear water and the techniques being developed to eliminate them.

"Ask a Scientist" is inspired by the internationally successful Cafe Scientifique and backed by Nova scienceNOW. Eat, drink, talk science!
