Where does our drinking water come from and what does the City of Batavia Water Department do to ensure it is safe to drink?

John Dillon, Batavia’s Water and Sewer Superintendent will give a short presentation about Batavia’s Water followed by a tour of the Batavia water treatment plant. Presentations and tours will take place Fri., July 16 at 10am and 12pm at the Batavia Water Treatment Plant, 38W503 Fabyan Pkwy. “I will discuss the history of the Batavia Water Supply, where Batavia’s water comes from, how the water is treated and how the water makes it to your faucet,” said John Dillon.

“With recent concerns about the safety of municipal water supplies, we are excited to partner with the Water Department to give citizens an up close look at our treatment facilities and a chance have their questions answered by the superintendent himself,” stated Carolyn Burnham, Batavia Environmental Commission member.

Attendees will be able to tour the treatment facilities and pumping facilities and learn how water is stored and pumped! Admission is free.
