Step back in time to learn about Raleigh’s water

posted on

We read an article a few days ago from the Raleigh Public Record in Raleigh, North Carolina that recounts the city’s vivid water history. It highlights the history of the city’s water supply dating back to the 1800s when pumps and wells were used for water distribution to the modern day treatment plants that are scattered throughout the city today.

There is also a six-part video series that is mentioned in the article that focuses on the history of Raleigh’s water history too.

It’s important to learn the history of our water so we can appreciate our clean and safe drinking water.
