What happens to used water and grease once it goes down the drain? These interactive, multi-disciplinary, STEM lessons and activities, introduce students and educators to the hidden world of thousands of miles of pipes, hundreds of valves and regulators, and other infrastructure with the power to transport our drinking water and wastewater. These activities will also teach us how to properly dispose of certain household items, like grease and flushable wipes, to protect our pipes and environment.
