Seymour-Capilano Water Treatment Facility – School Tours

NOTE: Due to concerns regarding COVID-19, Metro Vancouver has temporarily suspended facility tours.

 

​Where does your drinking water come from?
How is it treated?  How does it get to my home and school?

Give your students the chance to do some real-world, hands-on learning while exploring the Seymour Watershed and the state of the art Seymour Capilano Filtration Plant (SCFP).

Learn about the role that healthy ecosystems play in maintaining a reliable, clean and safe drinking water supply for over 2.4 million people with a tour of the Seymour Valley.  In-class experiments and a tour of the SCFP will help students discover the science of water treatment, what it take to operate this facility and learn about some exciting career opportunities.
