Today, the Progress Energy Leedership Sanford Class of 2009 was treated to a tour at the city’s waste water treatment plant, or “reclamation facility” as they call it.
As Bob wasn’t able to take the class on this tour (and has probably done it numerous times before anyway), I (Jennifer) got to go instead. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t thrilled at first…but I am so glad that I got to tag along. It was one of the most interesting field trips I’ve been on…and I’ve been to Angola Prison in Louisiana. On a field trip, I promise.
I highly recommend taking this tour!! All of the employees were very personable and informative. Robert was our tour guide and we couldn’t have asked for better. He is knowledgeable, passionate, humorous and doesn’t speak over your head. We had a great time with him.
Everyone left with smiles on their faces and noted that they’d had a good time. Here are some pictures of the group.
As I said, I highly recommend taking a trip to this facility. You’ll be surprised just how interesting this tour is!
