Natomas Scouts Tour Water Plant

THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz
More than three dozen Natomas Cub Scouts from Pack No. 402 toured the Sacramento River Water Treatment Plant on Friday.

Two groups of Cub Scouts and their siblings, some Girl Scouts, toured the 75-year-old facility located on the Sacramento River, east of Interstate 5.
The Scouts learned how water pumped out of the river passes through screens to prevent fish and debris from entering the plant. They also learned how the water is chlorinated, filtered, lime and fluoride added.

The plan is able to treat 160 million gallons of water per day. Nearly all the city’s water needs are met by the Sacramento and American rivers.
