Join us in Cuyahoga Heights rain or shine for a day of exhibits, games, giveaways, tours, and more. All free of charge.
Tours like no other
Tour a working wastewater treatment plant, one of the largest of the kind in the country, our Southerly Wastewater Treatment Center. Nearly 300 acres of working equipment will give you a real world experience of the innovation needed to protect clean water and public health. We'll also offer tours of our state-of-the-art science lab where we test tens of thousands of samples a year to make sure our water quality is safe. Space will be limited, so be sure to wear hard-sole closed-toe shoes for safety so you're not shut out.
Exhibits and entertainment
Our clean water work features a lot of creativity. We want to show you what it takes to serve our customers and we'll do that with exhibit booths, photo opportunities, special guest speakers, music, games, and more.
Bike tours, too.
Coming soon, we'll open registration for a one-of-a-kind bike tour of our Southerly plant and the Cleveland Metroparks near our facility. Space will be limited: Three groups will tour, 20 riders each group: Registration opens May 1, 2022.
