The art selection jury intends to commission two complementary installations totaling $107,000 to be permanently installed at two different locations near the exterior main entry to the Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility (AWWU) Eagle River Wastewater Treatment Facility (ERWWTF). The wastewater treatment facility is one of three throughout the Anchorage Municipality. The wastewater from this facility is returned to Eagle River, which flows from the Chugach Mountain range to Cook Inlet.
