Water Treatment Plant Tour Request

Water treatment plant tours are available for adult groups (college, business and/or civic organizations) with a minimum of 10 participants during the hours of 9:00 am-4:00pm (latest tour start time is 2:30 pm), Tuesday-Friday.  If you would like to schedule a tour for your college class, company or organization, please fill out the form below.

Due to safety and security, Des Moines Water Works no longer offers water treatment plant tours for school-aged children.  In replacement, we have produced water treatment process and water quality videos that you may use in your curriculum. 

Treatment Plant Tour Special Notes:

  • Your safety is our priority. The tour involves walking in a plant environment and outside conditions. Comfortable walking shoes and appropriate clothing for both indoors and outdoors are required.
  • Participants must park outside the security gate in Water Works Park and walk into the security gate. Each participant must show photo identification to the security guard.
  • No photography or video is allowed inside the treatment plant.
