Green Teens visit Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant

April 7, 2015,  Queens Green Teens  attended an outing to the Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant. The 13 Green Teens learned the importance of water conservation and how waste water is treated in New York City. The Green Teens received a behind the scenes tour of the facilities including the control room  and the  digester eggs. The Green Teens completed
an exercise in water usage and were taught about different ways to decrease their usage.
