An Aggie ring that spent a couple of years being cycled through a wastewater treatment plant has been returned to its owner thanks to a sharp-eyed plant employee.

Megan Marie Hubbard's ring fell into a toilet two weeks before her 2011 graduation from Texas A&M. Her efforts to retrieve it were washed away by the toilet's automatic flush.

The Eagle newspaper reports the ring reappeared earlier this month when Ron Waters, a plant technician for College Station, saw it shine against a debris slab he was washing down.

He used Texas A&M records to contact Hubbard, asking if she'd lost something prior to graduating. After a pause, she exclaimed, "You found my ring!"

The ring was cleaned, sanitized and mailed to Hubbard.
