Egyptians visit Conococheague treatment plant

May 18, 2000

A seven-member delegation from Alexandria, Egypt, toured Washington County's Conococheague Industrial Pretreatment Facility Thursday.

The Institute of International Education, a cultural and education exchange program, arranged and hosted the visit.

"It's tremendous to be able to share our ideas and our system of doing things with people from other countries," said Greg Larsen, who does marketing for the plant.

The seven people were utility and public works professionals with the Alexandra General Organization for Sanitary Discharge, Larsen said.

One reason they wanted to visit was because they had heard about the public-private partnership between the county and Spirit Services in which oily wastes are treated and recycled, Larsen said.

Spirit Services has been operating in Washington County since about August 1998 on space leased from the county at the plant.
