ATMTC commemorates World Toilet Day throughout the weekend, beginning Thursday with a release of a music video titled “Let’s Talk about Poop” and an interview featuring Philip Chung—playwright of upcoming production Poop: The Musical—and the Fairfax County Wastewater Management team.
What happens to your dirty water when it goes down the drain after you flush your toilet, take a shower, wash your dishes, or do your laundry? Find out by tuning in to see how wastewater is treated at Fairfax County’s Noman M. Cole, Jr., Pollution Control Plant. There will be discussion of all the non-flushable materials that cause sewer backups and blockages in more than 3,400 miles of sanitary sewer lines located in Fairfax County. Viewers will gain an appreciation for how wastewater treatment plants are working to keep the Potomac River clean. Employees of the Fairfax County Wastewater Management Department will also highlight the Sewer Science lab. Originally developed by the City of Palo Alto, California, the Sewer Science (Science of Wastewater) program allows students to create and treat wastewater.
Philip Chung is a writer for film, TV and theater and was the co-founder/co-Artistic Director of Lodestone Theatre Ensemble, an acclaimed Asian-American theater company. He co-founded the blog YouOffendMeYouOffendMyFamily (YOMYOMF) with film director Justin Lin and co. in 2009, and helped the launch of the YOMYOMF Network in June, one of YouTube’s new premium channels, where he oversees the creative content. In its debut launch, YOMYOMF ranked 9th out of 95 YouTube channels. Philip does not like long walks on the beach.
