Chattanooga Engineers Club will host our first Virtual Tour on Monday, August 24, from noon to 1 pm. Zoom pre-registration is required.
The tour will showcase the Tennessee American Water complex on Amnicola Highway where we will see the path of water treatment from the river to the delivery pipeline.
CEC's president Grady Stout will be our tour guide. Grady has been the Engineering Manager at Tennessee American for seven years. He is a graduate of Tennessee Technology University with a BS in Civil Engineering and a licensed PE in Tennessee. Grady will walk us around the complex and explain the processes that produce the safe drinking water.
