The Water Explorers were treated to another visitor from Northumbrian Water today. Rheanne came in to talk about what happens to waste water that is flushed down the drain from Corbridge. We learned about the problems of fat bergs and the benefits of bacteria. We even got to hold a plastic poo!
Rheanne gave us two bottles to shake - one with a piece of toilet paper and one with a wet-wipe - you definitely shouldn't flush wet wipes down the drain as they don't break down and can cause blockages.
There were some great questions and lots of lively discussion from the Water Explorer team. Thanks Rheanne!
