On Saturday, March 26th 2022, ASCE YMF hosted a hiking event at the Petroglyph Canyon Trail. The trail was a 4-mile moderate hike featuring hundreds of petroglyphs, incredible rock art, and wildflowers, with approximately 30 members in attendance. As luck would have it, this would be by far the hottest day to date, with temperatures topping 95 degrees. That being said, plenty of fluids and sunscreen were provided to our YMF adventurers and everyone had a great time! Please be on the look out for our next hiking/picnic event sometime over the next couple months up in the Mount Charleston Wilderness.
On Thursday, April 21st 2022, ASCE YMF hosted a Technical Tour at the Clark County Water Reclamation District (CCWRD). There were 15 members in attendance for the two hour tour, which started with an enlightening introduction of how the waste water treatment process works, followed by a tour of CCWRD’s facilities. Attendees learned about the secondary clarifiers, pump facility, UV disinfection, O-zone disinfection, membrane filtration, and sludge processing and disposal, among other things. Lastly, members were treated to lunch where the conversation about the treatment process continued. A special thanks to Kim Adler, who helped us put this tour together, as well as Jacob Sanders, Alycia Ybarra, and Dan Fischer for hosting us at CCWRD!
