Tour The Last Known Steam-Powered Water Treatment Plant In The Country Is Right Here In Louisiana

Do you know where the water you drink comes from? If you’re in the Shreveport area, you may have passed the historic Shreveport Waterworks Pumping Station (also known as the McNeill Street Water Treatment Plant) without giving it much thought, but it happens to have a very unique history that you may be surprised to learn. In the late 1800s, Louisiana was at the forefront of water treatment and distribution, and you can visit the museum today to learn all about the history of water distribution in northern Louisiana.
