Entry into the grounds is across a set of sluice gates. (Yes, hand operated!) The old water ways are grassy (not so green) lawns now.
The Pump House is a combination of brick and tin siding. (Feeling very much like the old Intake Powerhouse).
A self guided tour takes visitors around a catwalk on the main floor over the pumps and penstocks.
The 125 foot smoke stack is visible from several miles away. (OK, yes I did think it was a surge tower when I first saw it, but no gravity flow here!).
Current employees of the Water Co are featured in a short film in the museum. I had to laugh when they mentioned the happy day that electricity replaced steam to run the pumps; how well I remember when our manual values were converted to power! The story here is also very similar to California's Central Valley: fertile farming land becoming urban sprawl. I'd hate to loose those Texas Ruby Red's for another Walmart.
(Note to travel pals: the parking is around a very tight turn; best to find a place down on the street)
