Rochester's Rich History: Water for Rochester, At Last 

When: Sat., Feb. 15, 1 p.m. 2020
Phone: 428-8370
"Water for Rochester, At Last" will continue the story of Rochester's attempts to build a water works after the expensive failure of the Rochester Water Works Company. Despite a few last attempts to have a private company build the system, the city decided to build two separate systems, one for fire protection in the business district that was demonstrated in February 1874, and a second general water supply from Hemlock Lake that was completed in 1876. Morris A. Pierce is the retired Energy Manager for the University of Rochester and is currently preparing a Documentary History of American Water Works.
