That’s because 18 high school juniors and seniors from Montgomery and Prince George’s County public schools will participate in WSSC’s first ever H2O Engineers event tomorrow at the Seneca Wastewater Treatment Plant in Germantown. The all-day event will provide the students with hands-on activities to highlight the need for engineering skills and innovation in the water industry.
