Deer Island Water Treatment Plant

We have organized a tour of our (sewage) wastewater treatment plant Deer Island. It is in the Boston Harbor and looks like a carton of eggs :) Deer Island is considered one of the best treatment plants in the U.S.

The Deer Island Wasterwater Treatment Plant which treats 365 million gallons of wastewater from the greater Boston area every day. Deer Island is one of the largest electricity users in the Northeast but generates more than half of its energy demands on-site via renewable energy.

The tour is Monday, May 1st from 10am to noon. We will leave Harvard Square at 9:00 am and should be back roughly around 12:30pm. Tickets are $10 each to cover transportation costs. Dudley House members and guests welcome. Tickets can be purchased on 3rd floor of Dudley House starting Monday morning. When you buy the tickets, be prepared to fill out the Authorization Release Form (attached). Also please read the MWRA Facility Tour Policy (attached). You will need to fax or mail in a copy of your driver's license or passport. If you wish, you can leave a copy of it with Jeff (on 3rd floor of Dudley) and I will fax it. These need to be faxed in by Friday April 14th.
