Pumping station


Just behind the main building I showed you yesterday is a secondary building where they actually pump the water right out of Lake Ontario. Once it's brought in, it goes up to the main building where it goes through several treatment steps before being sent out to Torontonians to drink!


The pumping station was quite impressive - all those motors running were really quite loud! But I love to see how things work and it was also fantastic that such a wonderfully decorative building still has a practical use today.

C'est super impressionnant ! En enlevant les machines, ça ferait une belle salle de bal !

Again with the gorgeous tall arched windows, I wonder what this building was used for originally Halcyon..it's so big and grand it would work as a ballroom.

It all looks so clean and neat! I guess that is appropriate considering we're talking about the water we drink!

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
