CHICAGO (AP) - It may be the perfect trip for anyone who has ever wondered where the water goes once it swirls down the drain or is flushed down a toilet: The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago is opening up for tours.

The district will have an open house May 21 between 9 a.m. and noon and conduct tours at six of its plants.

Visitors will be able to see firsthand how these plants operate. And as part of its effort to promote regional storm water management, the district will give away potted oak tree saplings.

The plants are in Chicago, Schaumburg, Hanover Park, Des Plaines, Skokie and Cicero.
