Facility Tour - Sunday, September 10

Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center | 2:00-4:00 pm
Learn about the innovative design, technology and operation of Philadelphia's Fairmount Water Works, the site of the nation's first successful municipal water supply system. Discover how the supply of clean, fresh water contributed to the growth of our young city in the 1800's, how land use over the decades contributed to changes in water quality and how the Philadelphia Water Department manages stormwater runoff which is considered the biggest contributor to water pollution in Philadelphia today. Topics will include discussion of Philadelphia Water's Green City, Clean Water initiative, a 25-year plan using green infrastructure to reduce the volume of stormwater entering combined sewers and the Freshwater Mussel Hatchery, a research and demonstration lab created to raise awareness about mussels and discover best practices for propagating new mussels with the  ultimate goal of restoring populations to increase water quality in the Delaware River watershed.
