Samples taken for the beginning of wastewater treatment testing

It’s Halloween at the EcoCenter, and the first-year sampling and testing of effluent from the EcoCenter’s on-site wastewater treatment system has begun.  SF Water technicians are shown drawing a sample from one of the treatment tanks.

SF PUC staff hope to use their experience at the EcoCenter to compare the results with that of the larger planned on-site wastewater treatment facility to be installed in the SFPUC’s new headquarters downtown.
