sightseeing tour with the streetcar brought us to the impressive RC Harris
treatment plant. Normally it’s unusual to get a tour around the RC Harris
treatment plant but for Wetskills they made an exception. The tour brought us
along all the treatment steps. Inside the treatment plant it looks like an old
train station or museum more than a drinking water treatment plant.
tour we walked along the beach were we had a great view of Lake Ontario on the left
and the skyline of Toronto in front of us. Standing next to the CN Tower in
downtown Toronto was already impressive but standing on the top of it was
really amazing. The weather was great so the view was wonderful and we couldn’t
only look around but also beneath us. Standing on the glass floor was a special
experience that not everyone liked that much.
At dinner the case studies were
presented and we knew that a new chapter of Wetskills had started/begun.
Everyone marked the top three cases that they want to do and the supervisors
divided the cases over the groups with the same preferences. At the end of the
dinner everyone wasn’t satisfied after an overwhelming day of experiences so we
decided to go for some rounds of pool.
