Trip to GWRS

I brought the ENVH 569 students to the Ground Water Replenishment System GWRS in Orange County. Its an impressive facility and would have turned me into a full fledged Civil Engineer if I was any younger. It is refreshing to visit such an advanced approach to our drought in California. 
 
 The lab was also impressive. Those folks are progressive with their approach to testing all potential contaminants. The lab was designed with tours in mind and we could easily peer into windows with the lab techs hard at work.
 Everything is setup with tours in mind.

 We were all invited to taste the final product. Most students had the overwhelmingly surprising response: "It tastes like water".
 It is a clean facility that is designed for visitors to nose around on tours.
