Where the Water Goes

Central Treatment PlantWhere Does That Water Go?

 Wastewater from our toilets and sinks goes through the sewer pipes to a wastewater treatment plant where it is treated before it is returned to our natural environment.

If you live in a house, wastewater first goes through a side sewer which connects to the City's main sewer lines out in the streets.
