The Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) Work for Water program was among the many exhibitors and presenters featured at the 2nd USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo, the nation’s largest celebration of science and engineering, which was held April 28 and 29 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

The Work for Water exhibit featured “Sewer Science,” a hands-on lab that demonstrates how municipal wastewater treatment works. Visitors to the lab had the opportunity to test the pH of various liquids and synchronously learned about the importance of keeping our waters healthy.

Water experts from WEF, CH2M Hill (Englewood, Colo.), AECOM (Los Angeles), the Upper Occoquan Service Authority (Centreville, Va.), and Fairfax County, Va., volunteered for the festival.
