This week the City of Boise is holding an open house for the public to tour the Advanced Water Treatment pilot program.
Using five different filtration and treatment methods, the pilot purifies 40 gallons of industrial water per minute, according to the city. The goal is to create a larger facility to treat and recycle more of Boise’s water using the pilot’s findings, creating a more drought and climate change-resistant water infrastructure.
If you want to learn more about the pilot, the open house is on Saturday, Aug. 26, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., at 7781 South Silicon Lane, which is on Micron’s campus.
You’ll have another chance to learn about it with a “Meet up with the Mayor” at the pilot next Monday.
That’ll be followed by a “Meet up with the Mayor” at Boise Urban Garden School (BUGS), which will wrap up the recent run of events with Mayor Lauren McLean.
