The Poplarville Agriculture Environmental Class toured the Pearl River Utility Authority's Waste Treatment Plant in Poplarville Wednesday, November 5, 2014. Mr. Cliff Hodges gave the students a walking tour of the physical plant. He was assisted by Cody Morris. Mr. Hodges explained to the students that the sewage treatment plant uses natural bacteria to break down the sewage before it returns to the environment. He also talked to the students about how technology makes the plant easier to monitor.
