White's Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant


Join us on a 1 hour walking tour of the Whites Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant and see how Metro Water Services reclaims water contaminated by residential and commercial sewage, cleans it, and returns it to the river. During the walking tour of the treatment plant, you will learn about wastewater treatment processes and what Metro Water Services is doing to help protect clean water and healthy ecosystems for rivers and stay ahead of the curve as Nashville grows. Discover more about Metro Water Services latest technology, its zero-chemical treatment plant, and plans to use ultraviolet light to disinfect water at all three of its wastewater plants in the future.

Children must ages 12 years of age or older and accompanied by a parent. Dress for an outside tour. Restroom facilities very limited. Flat, closed toe shoes are required for everyone. Food and drinks including bottled water are not permitted in the facility. Please let us know in advance if there are special assistance needs and we will do what we can to accommodate. This is an industrial facility built in 1975 and as such there are some stairs, gratings, and uneven pathways. The program will be rescheduled in the event of rain If you have any questions please contact janepolansky@harpethriver.org.
