To set up a plant tour, please call the Henderson Water Utility at
We are happy to offer tours of our water and wastewater treatment plants to interested individuals and groups.
We are also happy to come to your group meeting or school classroom to make presentations on subjects of interest to you.
A tour begins at the raw water intake, which draws water out of the Ohio River. The intake is located near the intersection of Fifth and Water streets, close to the North Water Treatment Plant. The tour guide is hidden behind the large 250 HP motor on the far right. The smaller electric motor on the left is “only” 150 HP.
