Hi! This project is for a chemistry class, but I picked an environmental topic on purpose, so I am posting it here. I have to do a presentation in my Chemistry class on waste water management and sewage treatment. Does anyone know where I can find information on this topic?

Good topic, important chemistry problem. Obviously, the library would be a good source of information, but here is another idea. Call your local water utility and ask if they give public tours of the sewerage treatment facility. If so, take a camera with your and give your whole class the tour in a slide show. If not, maybe they have some free brochures or booklets about it.
