During the visit, Congresswoman Bourdeaux was provided a
guided tour of the WRF to get a look at the process for cleaning and returning
water back into the environment. The Fowler WRF recently underwent an expansion
to increase capacity from 2.5 MGD to 5 MGD (million gallons per day). The
expansion was made to accommodate growth in the area, as well as provide
redundancy within the system. The Fowler facility also had additional
improvements, including upgrades to existing systems and equipment.
Following her visit to the WRF, Congresswoman Bourdeaux was
taken on a tour of a portion of the County’s Big Creek Greenway. On the tour,
she was able to visit a closed portion of the greenway in need of boardwalk
repair as part of her support for legislation that would improve infrastructure.
