From wastewater to golf greens: Students see science in action

Santa Catalina School’s Environmental Science class followed their classroom lesson to the source when they visited the Carmel Area Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The class had been taking a deep dive into water sources and quality in California. They visited the Carmel facility to learn how the plant treats wastewater for other uses. Specifically, students were able to see how the plant cleans and recycles wastewater to be used on Pebble Beach golf courses.

The field trip helped students make the connection between issues they are studying in class and practical applications in the real world.
