From Fox Metro WRD:

On September 20th, Fox Metro WRD is proud to present a pre-Greenfest tour and solar showcase. Please join us at 682 Route 31, Oswego, IL at 11 am for a brief presentation on solar energy and the wastewater treatment process. We will have box lunches for attendees. Please RSVP via email to

Fox Metro WRD is evaluating a solar energy installation project that could provide up to 11% of our annual electricity usage. This is a great opportunity to ask questions about this green initiative and other exciting upgrades going on at your local wastewater treatment plant!

Completed in 1929, Fox Metro WRD’s wastewater plant serves approximately 300,000 residents of Aurora, Oswego, Montgomery, North Aurora, Sugar Grove, and portions of Batavia and Yorkville.

Now in its 9th year, the Aurora GreenFest is the longest running Greenfest of its kind.  It offers common sense sustainability solutions for Aurora & Fox River Valley!

Aurora GreenFest is held on the September 22nd @ Prisco Community Center from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
