Olds College hosted the House of Commons Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development last week.
National dignitaries recently stopped by Olds College to tour the state-of-the-art treatment wetlands on campus.
Dr. Dickson Atuke, Lead Wetlands Scientist at OC, says the committee was interested in learning how the facility will address the needs of the college, province and industry through technology and research.
He says the facility will be useful to researchers all over the world as they strive to protect our depleting wetlands.
The treatment wetlands are in the last stages of construction and should be
running fully by August.
