Illinois Section AWWA - E-Splash -  May 2012

Laura Alley - Chair

Thank you to all who visited the Waterworks Museum during this year's WaterCon. We had some fantastic artifacts on display. This year Springfield City, Water, Light and Power not only brought their amazing section of wooden water main, but also a large piece of 24 inch cast iron pipe. Looks can be deceiving because this wooden main is not as old as one might think. This particular piece is from the 1940's when in wartime metal was scarce.

Another intriguing artifact was contributed by Kyle Wallis from the City of West Chicago. He brought a Hach Testing Kit which was originally used on his grandfather's dairy farm. The piece was quite fascinating since it still had the chemicals it their original bottles.

Without our volunteers and contributors, the museum would not have been a success. Thank you for volunteering your time and your artifacts. I hope next year will be just as successful.

Start looking around for next year. You never know what might turn up.
