On 13th of October WRL members Sandis Dejus, Viktorija Denisova and Kristina Tihomirova participated in Career day’s event. Together with 25 pupils from Riga 64th school they visited the Riga Water Supply Museum, drinking water treatment plant Baltezers and wastewater treatment plant Ādaži. Sandis showed a presentation about the sustainable use of drinking water, the comparison between tap and bottled water, as well as wastewater treatment processes.
The aim of the event was to introduce schoolers to different professions that are necessary to perform safe and qualitative water and wastewater treatment processes.
During the day pupils had an opportunity to see the eco-friendly bio-filter system for wastewater treatment developed by the Riga Technical University Water Research Laboratory (RTU WRL) scientists within the Central Baltic Sea region project «Pilot watersheds as a practical tool to reduce the harmful inflows into the Baltic Sea – WATERCHAIN CB50».
We are thankful to Rīgas ūdens Ltd and Ādažu ūdens Ltd for support and opportunity to visit these interesting historical and professionally important places!
