EarthEcho Expeditions Virtual Fieldtrip: What Happens When We Flush?

If you were not able to view the event live, please tune in below as Jenny Newland and Vicki Fenwick from the Canaan Valley Institute discuss the importance of wastewater while taking you on a tour through their greenhouse, which uses recycled wastewater. During the virtual fieldtrip they answered questions on why what goes down your drain is important to everyone and what you can do to make improvements in the wastewater in your homes and schools. We also heard from students from Petersburg Elementary School, who are doing their own stream testing to monitor the health of water in their community. Please submit questions via the form below and we will answer them here, on this page. For more information on Canaan Valley Institute, check out their website (
