E-Splash November 2012 - Waterworks Museum
Share |

Illinois Section AWWA - E-Splash -  November 2012

Laura Alley - Chair

The Waterworks Museum is returning to WATERCON 2013 for another wonderful year. The Museum has been such a success the past few years that the Section wants to continue to recognize the water industry’s history. The Museum has been host to several interesting items over the years. This past March, Museum visitors were wowed by a massive section of cast iron pipe provided by the City of Springfield. Also on display was surveying equipment, blueprints, meters, record keeping books, photographs and newspaper articles. The Section even displayed past editions of Splash, typeset, and a variety of promotional items from years past.

As with any museum, the Waterworks Museum depends greatly on the participation of the community. Maybe you have an artifact that you would like to share. Look around your office or plant, and you might be surprised at what you find. All interesting water and wastewater artifacts are welcome. Artifacts can be from any era, decade or year. The artifacts are only on display during the conference because the Section does not maintain a permanent collection. Please bring your artifacts to help illustrate how the water industry has advanced throughout the years.

If you are interested in displaying an artifact or volunteering to help monitor the Museum, please contact me at 630-739-8824 or Space is limited so please let me know what you plan on bringing as soon as possible.
