Water celebration appreciated by city

The City of Concord successfully celebrated the national campaign, “Imagine A Day Without Water,” on Oct. 12, hosted by the Value of Water Campaign. Concord General Services promoted the importance of investing in water infrastructure to maintain and upgrade resources to meet increasing demand and provide for future generations.

The public attended an Open House at the City’s Water Treatment Facility and Wastewater Treatment Facility on Oct. 12 and local schools attended personalized tours of both facilities the following week. Approximately 180 sixth-graders from Merrimack Valley Middle School and 54 high schoolers part of the Concord Regional Technical Center attended tours geared towards educational interests. Middle schoolers received a brief overview of operations, a demonstration of water equipment vehicles, and a water conservation exhibit. High school students of the technical center received a more detailed operations tour with more focus on the mechanics, technology and skills required to work at the facilities.
