About the Tour

The GLWA’s water system’s newest water treatment plant is Water Works Park. It is the largest plant in Michigan to use ozone, a disinfectant more potent than chlorine. The plant can produce up to 240 million gallons of superior quality drinking water per day (MGD) with room for expansion to 320 MGD. The end result of the city’s $275 million investment in this state-of-the-art facility is water the way it is meant to be: colorless, odorless, and great tasting; even better tasting than the water for which GLWA has been justifiably lauded for more than 150 years.

Water Works Park has been in continuous use as a source of potable water since 1879. It has been a source of pride for the City of Detroit, as well as home to the world’s second tallest manmade structure prior to the Eiffel Tower and home to the first branch of the Detroit Public Library. Now that it is home to GLWA’s newest water treatment plant, the park is expected to continue to be a source of high quality drinking water for a long time to come.
