Ashburton Filtration Plant: A Behind-the-Scenes Tour

February 1 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

$10 – $15 | Register

Ever thought about where that water from your faucet comes from? On February 1, please join us to learn about the processing and distribution of Baltimore’s excellent drinking water! The City operates three water filtration plants to meet current and future demands of the metropolitan area’s 1.8 million consumers. The Ashburton Filtration Plant, located on the west side of the City, is supplied by Liberty Reservoir through a 10’ wide tunnel that is 13 miles long. This plant can treat up to 165 million gallons per day! We hope you’ll come along to see how Baltimore has stayed hydrated and clean at this plant that has been in continuous operation for over 60 years.
