Cincinnati Water Works Pumping Station, opened in 1907

On the June 1st Society for Industrial Archaeology tour of the marvelous 1907 Cincinnati Water Works, the staff graciously took us through the Filtration Plant, still operating with its original rapid sand filters, and the monumental Pumping Station, which still has its four original steam engines in place.  The quality of this public infrastructure, the century-long payback from the original public investment, and the pride and care with which the Greater Cincinnati Water Works staff maintains this national landmark facility is rarely seen today.
