Description

Celebrating 100 Years and Planning for the Next 100 Years!


Water plays a key role in your health and safety. Des Moines Water Works plays a key role in providing you with a safe, affordable and abundant water supply. Since 1919, Des Moines Water Works has been an independently operated, public utility, now providing drinking water to 500,000 Central Iowans. To celebrate 100 years of serving Central Iowa, we are opening the Fleur Drive Treatment Plant on Saturday, November 2, 2019, for the community to enjoy a "Behind the Scenes" tour of the treatment process that produces and delivers water 24 hours/365 days a year. Follow along on the treatment process from River to Tap and then view some of the equipment used in the field to maintain the distribution system.

Open house and tour spots are limited and pre-registration is required. The tour involves walking in a plant environment and outside conditions. Comfortable walking shoes and appropriate clothing for both indoors and outdoors are required.
