William Street Pumping Station

The William Street Pumping Station is an architectural landmark of uptown Waterloo and a symbol of the region’s innovation and industrial spirit. Built in 1899 as the site of the first groundwater wells in Waterloo, it provided access to a clean and reliable water supply that contributed greatly to the social welfare of the community. A point of pride for those who work to protect and provide water for our booming municipality, William Street Pumping Station is a reminder of the parts we all play in protecting the community’s public health. As part of Digital Doors Open, watch the video below for a behind-the-scenes experience of this historical pumping station.
