SCDSB Celebrates Another Successful Year of the Dearness Conservation Program

As part of the Year End Celebration for the Dearness Conservation Program, students and teachers attended a tour of the Wanapitei Water Treatment Plant. Participants had the opportunity to interact and ask question from the tour guides and learn more about the water distribution system in the City of Greater Sudbury

June 6, 2006 - The Sudbury Catholic District School Board recently took the opportunity to thank the lead teachers and students for their ongoing efforts and commitment in helping schools conserve resources and protect the environment. The Board has been successful in accomplishing this goal with the help of the Dearness Conservation program which is a proven, practical student/staff driven environmental program that enhances curriculum, modifies behaviour, and is self financing through utility savings and waste reduction.

A field trip was organized for the participants to the City of Greater Sudbury's water treatment plant and landfill site. Both tours allowed students and teachers to gain a better understanding of how complex the local water treatment process is, along with the importance of recycling.

The Sudbury Catholic District School Board would also like to thank the Wanapitei Water Treatment Plant Staff, Bernice Tario and Carrie Ann Marasato from the Waste Division Department/City of Greater Sudbury, INCO Limited, and Union Gas for their assistance in this event.
