Request for Tour of Des Moines Water Works

With more limited resources, our education outreach has changed to focus on adult learners, and unfortunately, we no longer offer treatment plant tours for school children. In replacement, we have produced new water treatment process videos that you may use in your curriculum. View videos here:

Tours are available for adult groups (college, business and/or civic organizations) during the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 8:00 a.m. to Noon on Friday. If you would like to schedule a tour for your college class, company or organization, please fill out the form below.

Please Note

• Your safety is our priority. The tour involves walking in a plant environment and outside conditions. Comfortable walking shoes and appropriate clothing for both indoors and outdoors are required.

• Participants must park outside the security gate in Water Works Park and walk into the security gate. Each participant must show photo identification to the security guard.

• No photography or video is allowed inside the treatment plant.
