      EVENT DETAILS
      Teen Homeschool Days- Wastewater Treatment

      Join us as we learn about the wastewater treatment process.  We will be taking a tour of our wastewater treatment plant and learn about the engineering behind it. FAQs  Treatment Plant Rules/Regulations Liability form must be signed and turned in before tour begins.  If atendee is under 18, parent or guardian must sign. Tours involve quite a bit of walking (possibly on uneven surfaces) and stair climbing. We can modify the route to accommodate wheelchairs, canes and walkers. But, we have no facilities for, and cannot accommodate, young children, infants, or strollers. Visitors must be adequately dressed and prepared for a variety of weather conditions. Long pants and closed toed shoes are required. (Preferably athletic shoes.) No shorts, skirts, flip-flops, sandals, or open-toed shoes allowed. Those not wearing the appropriate attire may be turned away from taking the tour. All visitors must be at least 8 years old or in the 3rd grade. Always follow the directions of the tour guides. Feel free to take pictures but stay with the group to avoid being left behind and always watch your step.  Be mindful of the people working throughout the plant. Treatment plants are in operation 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Never touch any switches, buttons or equipment.  Please be advised that due to security issues we reserve the right to refuse anyone from taking part in a tour and to cancel tours in the event of a Plant or City emergency. Upon entering McAllen Public Utility facilities, visitors authorize MPU to the use of photos, quotes or video footage from tours for the purpose of marketing. Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? This event is geared for teenage homeschool students.   Children 8 and up are allowed to participate with a parent chaperone.  (LImited space/priority to teenage group) What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?   How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
