Your Future with Clean Urban Water


A STEMinar presentation by Venkata Gullapalli, UofL.


The Water Treatment Pilot Plant is one of five (5) green engineering components at Beargrass falls. In a collaborative effort by UofL, UK, KIESD, MSD, Louisville Parks and Recreation, and District 9; the pilot water treatment plant uses no fossil fuels to treat Beargrass creek water and also helps increase the Dissolved Oxygen (DO) Concentration in the creek. At this month’s STEMinar learn how the Water Treatment Pilot Plant treats the water we use every day at Beargrass creek and how these methods could produce some of the most efficiently clean water to date!

This is a FREE event!
