Wetland Pharmaceutical Drop Off

Join us at the Sewanee Utility District Saturday November 11th from 1-4pm to safely and properly dispose of your excess medications so they don’t end up in our community’s wastewater. A Sewanee Police Officer will be present to ensure that the medications are handled properly. And then join us for a guided tour of the Sewanee Constructed Wetlands, where our docents will inform you about the interesting research being conducted regarding Sewanee's wastewater and you can be the first to enjoy the signage we’ve erected (at your recommendation) to explain the treatment process. Coffee and Hot Chocolate will be provided to keep you warm on your tour. All are welcome to learn why it is important to never flush excess medications down the drain, even if you don't have any to get rid of now.
Hope to see you there!

Take a first look at the wetlands!

Please join us on Saturday, October 29th (any time from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.) at the Sewanee Utility District office at 150 Sherwood Road to see our brand new wastewater treatment wetlands in action (shuttles will take participants from the SUD's office to the wetland site)! We invite the community to learn how the wetland works, understand the monitoring process, and help us plant trees. We will provide coffee and breakfast snacks and have prepared several activities for children!
