Historic Pumping Station
More than a Century of Service:
You're standing before water pumping history -- DC Water's Main Pumping Station. This beautiful and distinctive building was built in 1905 in the Beaux Arts style, like Union Station and the Corcoran Art Gallery. It was fully renovated in 2005, now handles up to 400 million gallons of wastewater a day, and is one of nine such stations throughout DC.
