Status: Abandoned

The Shawnee Water Treatment Facility sits on the property of the current water treatment facility for Shawnee. The property is over 100 years old, and is currently being used as storage. The facility lacked the proper gauges to read important levels of  flow, and a new facility was built in 1980 and eventually in 2005 the old facility closed for good. The facility has several pieces of historic equipment inside including original Nordberg Diesel Generators dating back to the early 1900’s. The current manager says he still has the original manuals to the generators in his desk. Currently, the old waste ponds are being filled in and the electricity has been cut to the old plant with no plans on reopening the out of date facility.

Starting from a young age, I’ve always loved exploring. I can remember venturing off and scoping out the houses being built in the developing neighborhood right behind my house. As I got older, I found myself appreciating the work and love that went into architecture and just being excited to pass by the beautifully designed places in downtown.

If you wish to support our current and future work, please consider making a donation or purchasing one of our many books. Any and all donations are appreciated.
