Hector the Heron, Water Treatment
Today we're celebrating #EarthDay and thinking about the ways that we can protect the planet from harm. As countries all around the world make great effort to decrease pollution, here at the National Coal Mining Museum, we're doing our bit to make sure that the water you're drinking is as clean as possible!
Did you know that we have our own water treatment plant up at Hope Pit which cleans all of the water we pump out of the mine? Luckily for us, our friend Hector the Heron is on hand to help us discover more about the entire process.
