Tour Our Water Treatment Plant

Detention basins inside the water treatment plant

Touring the Aspinwall Water Treatment Plant is a unique experience for a school field trip, a research project, or an educational outing. You will learn about the source of your drinking water, the treatment process, and how it's distributed to taps throughout Pittsburgh. From March 1 through November 30, we offer tours to schools and community groups upon request. They range from 20 minutes to one hour, and we will work with you to cover the information your group is most interested in learning.
