As part of National Drinking Water Week (NDWW), May 7-13, community members are invited to tour the Evanston Water Treatment Facility, located at 555 Lincoln St., on May 13.

The City of Evanston’s Water Production Bureau will provide two tours on a first-come, first-served basis. The first tour will be given from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. for residents 15 years and older. A second “child friendly” tour will follow from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for residents with children age 6 years or older. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. All adults are required to provide photo identification upon arrival.

To register, please call 847-448-8198 or email water@cityofevanston.org by May 10. Walk-in registration will not be available.

Parking will be available at the Water Treatment Facility via the driveway located on the north side of Lincoln Street, between the two buildings.

Please arrive 20 minutes before the tour start time, as admittance will not be permitted once the tours have started.
