Come and see how we protect public health and the environment!
The Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District conducts scheduled tours of its Nine Springs Treatment Plant. Conducting tours is part of the Districtís continuing efforts to be a good neighbor and a positive influence on our community. Over 2000 people visit our plant each year.
We customize our tours for the needs of each group visiting our plant. A typical tour, however, will last approximately an hour and a half. Best starting times for tours are Monday through Friday between 7:00 am and 2:00 pm. We do not conduct tours on major holidays. We suggest wearing comfortable clothes and very comfortable shoes (no open-toed shoes, sandals, or flip-flops) as there will be a lot of walking and stair climbing. We do not cancel our tours due to weather unless it poses a danger to our visitors, so dress appropriately for the weather. With advance notice, we can make arrangements for individuals with physical handicaps to participate in our tours, but some portions of our normal tours are inaccessible.
If you would like to know more, or would like to schedule a tour, call Jim Post at (608) 222-1201 Ext. 367. We will need to know your desired date or dates and time for a tour, the name of your group, the number attending, age and interests of the group, and the name and phone number of a contact person. If your group has some specific questions to ask as part of the tour, please submit the list prior to your tour, so we can prepare the answers for your group. Please email such questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax them to (608) 222-2703.
