Supervisor Daisy Morales Takes Students on Educational Tour of Orlando Water Treatment Facility

ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN NEWS) – Orange Soil & Water Conservation District Supervisor Daisy Morales treated local students to an interactive tour of the City of Orlando’s Water Reclamation Facility at Conserv II Tuesday morning, November 26.

“The environmental tour of the facility is about educating school aged students on the importance of water conservation,” said Supervisor Morales. “My environmental tours aim to engage the public to become ecologically friendly across Orange County.” She believed this tour was a great way to show the students what happens to the water when they are done using it.

“They can see firsthand the applications used before the water is purified for reuse,” she added.

Reclaimed water is wastewater which has been cleaned, processed, and ready for reuse, according to the Water Reclamation Division’s website. The nutrient-rich reclaimed water helps nourish plants, trees, and grasses.

The students also learned about the importance of watersheds, water quality, point and non point source pollution, and solutions using the Enviroscape Model. The portable model allows students to explore conservation concepts through hands-on activities by demonstrating pollution sources and their prevention.

The City of Orando’s Water Reclamation Education Center educate students of all ages on the importance of protecting and conserving their water by preventing sanitary sewer overflows. The education tours are free and take place at the Education Center located off L.B. Mcleod Road as well as in a classroom setting for schools and community programs.
