A look inside the Springs’ wastewater treatment facility

It started out as a mission to find out if there was any truth to something I heard years ago. I don’t remember when, or who said it, but I recall being told that at the end of the sewage treatment process, they find whole, undigested vitamins. “What a waste,” was my second thought. Of course, my first thought was, “GROSS!” Often, as I swallowed my vitamins, I wondered if it was even worth it. Then I stumbled across a Wired magazine article about the strangest things found in a Berlin waste treatment plant (dentures and bullets among them). That’s what led me to the Springs’ Las Vegas Wastewater Treatment Facility recently. I set out to see what oddities our sewers might yield.
