Due to potential inclement weather, no tours will be scheduled during winter. Tours will resume in spring.

The City of Asheville Water Resources Department has an education program. We offer tours of our water treatment plants, as well as lessons on the environment and water quality. We promote conservation and sustainability of vital resources. Our education program coordinator is available for classroom presentations, or you can arrange to visit our education room. We can customize lessons to meet your needs, while adhering to NC Curriculum Standards.
