Things to do
Holdenhurst water recycling centre receives all the wastewater from the residents, visitors and businesses in Bournemouth.
At the centre, your class will learn about the weird things that end up in our sewers, the living microorganisms that are used to clean sewage, and how we turn sludge into renewable energy.
They will discover how water companies fit into the natural water cycle and the challenges posed by climate change, as well as gaining an insight into how we help to protect local beaches.
We also cover the impact non-biodegradable items and fats, oils and grease (FOGs) have on the sewer network and the environment.
Holdenhurst offers a range of activities for key stage 2 pupils through to A level students, as well as being popular with university and college students studying geography or environmental courses.
