Year 8 visit Long Reach Sewage Treatment Works

On Thursday 13 June 30 Year 8 students travelled to the Long Reach Sewage Treatment Works in Dartford which is operated by Thames Water.

Over the course of the day the group toured the site, purified water and understood the value of the hidden engineering which makes modern city living possible, as well as how we all contribute to helping it work better.

Along with the wastewater treatment, the students understood the value that the site had along the banks of the Thames estuary in providing managed space for wild animals especially many rare bumblebees species.

Thanks go to Greg at Thames Water for hosting us and Mr Hammond for organising the trip.
