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.
