The Public Education committee is looking for volunteers to help with the Western Nebraska Children’s Groundwater Festival on Friday April 28th in Sidney, NE. The festival is held at the Cheyenne County Community Center and the Lodgepole Valley Youth Camp. We will be presenting the Wastewater Jeopardy game to approximately 150 4th and 5th grade students. If you would like to help out with the festival, please contact Brittany Travers (brittany@e-equipmentsolutions.com | 402-880-0321) or Todd Sukup (wastewater@cityofsidney.org | 308-249-2224). Thanks for your continued support of the Public Education committee’s youth outreach program!
