At this facility, the Zoo’s Life Support Team turns tap water into salt water, changes the pH of the water to counter acidity caused by animal waste and adds binding agents. All this insures that the exhibit’s 250,000 gallons of water meet the highest possible parameters for a safe environment for the California sea lions and harbor seal. They also keep the water clear for the visitors to see the animals enjoy their habitat. The Saint Louis Zoo showed off the facility in conjunction with World Water Day which is March 22.
