AP Environmental Science Class to the Monk Hill Water Treatment Plant

Funded by NASA and backed by the U.S. EPA, California Department of Toxic Substances Control and the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Board, the state-of-the-art water treatment plant is part of an ongoing effort to remove perchlorate and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the groundwater near NASA-owned JPL, which was the site of Army rocket testing decades ago.
 
The visit provided students with a tangible perspective of the material they have been studying within the classrooms.  Students worked to construct their own water treatment filter systems and competed to achieve ‘clean’ water.
