We Drink the River!

May 4 @ 1:00 PM - 4:30 PM


Tour one of the Philadelphia Water Department’s drinking water treatment plants and learn how our system is connected to our rivers, including past and present-day infrastructure that brings us clean and safe drinking water every day.

During this special bus tour, you’ll see how we turn raw river water into top-quality tap that meets or beats state and federal quality standards.

Afterwards, the group will enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at the production of award-winning ales from Yards Brewing Company at its BRAND NEW facility, as well as a guided flight tasting.

This is a special tour, with a total of only 20 available spaces, so register today!
