Ravensview field trip

Ravensview wastewater Ravensview2

On March 28th, a small group of graduate and undergraduate students in Chemical Engineering visited the Ravensview Wastewater Treatment Plant located east of Kingston, Ontario. Plant Operator Glenn Sorensen lead the group through each station, and provided students with detailed information on the treatment of wastewater and the day-to-day activities at Ravensview. This opportunity to experience the practical applications of the theory discussed in CHEE 371 Mitigation of Industrial Pollution is much appreciated. We would like to thank the City of Kingston for opening the doors to Ravensview to the CHEE 371 class, and especially Mr. Sorensen for hosting this interesting tour.
