100s Tour Plant On 75th Anniversary

Employees for the city of Coeur d’Alene’s wastewater treatment utility served up more than 300 free hamburgers and hot dogs on Friday to celebrate the 75th year anniversary of the opening of the treatment plant on the Spokane River. “There was a diverse group of people representing all ages that were interested in the treatment process. I was very pleased at the turnout,” said city wastewater superintendent Sid Fredrickson. “For those folks not able to attend, I’d like to remind the public that we are always happy to set up tours of the plant.” The city of Coeur d’Alene was a trailblazer in the handling of sewage, building it first treatment plant in 1939/Keith Erickson, Coeur d'Alene Today.

Question: Have you ever toured the wastewater treatment plant?
