Since 1890, the nearby city was being supplied by only one water works until in 1954, this facility was built next to a lake to secure the water supply in the growing city.
These water works were closed in 1999 and have been abandoned since then.
The overall condition is really pretty good. Of course, there have been some copper thieves, but it seems they haven't been too successful. The building is pretty well secured and the way in is very narrow.
A lot of the machines aren't there anymore, probably because they were moved or sold when the facility closed down.
Still, the buildings themselves and the remaining thechnical inventory made for some nice photos.
