MT. GREENWOOD — Sure, you’ve probably heard of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago, but do you know what it does? Find out at their Road Show Saturday at the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences.

Attendees will have a chance to meet the current board of commissioners, hear about local projects and infrastructure, and learn how to prevent basement stormwater backups.

Those interested in a career in wastewater treatment can find out about the types of positions available with the district and apply for jobs.

People are encouraged to bring unwanted medications, electronics and paper for proper disposal.

There will be STEM activities for kids, and a chance to win a free rain barrel.

The Road Show runs from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at the school, 3857 W. 111th Street.

The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District has operated in Chicago since 1899.
