Tuesday, July 25th (2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.)

The PureSoJo Demonstration facility is a 10-gpm, non-RO, CBAT-based process train that is purifying MBR-treated wastewater to drinking water quality. The facility aims to provide information and experience to support future DPR regulations in Utah and the US, and provide public outreach and education promoting DPR as a viable water supply alternative. During the tour, you will explore the backstory of how the pilot came to be and details on the individual processes.

Learn More about all Salt Lake City has to offer! 

Downtown has truly come into its own in recent years, with so much to do year-round that the city center is a destination for both locals and tourists. Catch an open-air concert on a blissfully warm summer night, wander the bustling farmer’s market (bring your appetite), stroll the city’s finest art galleries, sample a taste of farm-to-table fare, check out a Utah Jazz NBA game, or find your favorite new mixologist.
The city makes it easy to get around—city bus rides and TRAX train rides are free within the downtown zone, and Green Bike rental stations dot the landscape. Which means you can get from historic pioneer architecture to the hippest speakeasy in town in three minutes flat.
