The City of Pocatello Water Department is inviting the public to learn about what goes into providing safe, clean water to the residents of the Gate City.


In conjunction with National Drinking Water Week, the department is hosting its 26th Annual Open House at the Water Operations Facility, 1889 N. Arthur Avenue., May 8 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., May 9 and 10 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., and May 11 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.


Water Department staff will be joined by representatives from the City’s Water Pollution Control and Sanitation Departments, the Science and Environment Division and the Bannock County Landfill to help educate the public on the importance of water and the environment. Employees have built displays on a variety of topics including water quality, aquifer protection, conservation, and more. Refreshments and reading material are provided to the attendees with the help of the Idaho Water Education Foundation’s “Idaho Water Awareness Week” program and local businesses.
