ATHENA PARTICIPATES IN EARTH DAY CELEBRATION AND WETLAND RIBBON CUTTING
Earth Day was celebrated at the City of Athena with the opening of the wetlands. Students from the area school also participated by hanging bird houses and planting of trees. This was in conjunction of the USDA and DEQ. The wetlands were created to provide an area to process treated effluent from the wastewater plant in Athena. As the water moves through the series of wetlands (bacteria eating ponds), wetland plants remove remaining nutrients. The water discharged from the system into Pine Creek is free of contaminants, ensuring water quality and the health of in-stream habitats. For more information stop by City Hall.
