Clearwater seniors coordinator  Lynn Frizzle doesn’t appear to like the smell of the sludge that is filtered out of the water at the Kamloops Centre for Water Quality.

Commissioned in 2005, the centre uses state-of-the-art membrane filtration technology to provide safe drinking water to the city.

Frizzle was with a group of 17 seniors who enjoyed a field trip of the facility on Aug. 18.

The trip was organized by Wells Gray Country Seniors Society and funded by the Government of Canada, New Horizons forSeniors Program.
