WATER Center

101 East Pawnee

The Wichita Area Treatment, Education & Remediation (WATER) Center opened October 16, 2003.  The Center serves as a treatment facility for the Gilbert-Mosley Project, as well as a public education resource.

 The remediation system begins with five and one-half miles of conveyance piping and thirteen extraction wells, which extract and convey the polluted groundwater to the WATER Center treatment facility.  Once the groundwater reaches the facility, it is cleaned by a hydraulic-venturi air stripper treatment system.  This remediation system limits the spread of and removes the groundwater contamination.

 The WATER Center treatment facility was designed to encourage public interest in and observation of groundwater remediation.  The Center also offers a number variety of education programs

I haven't been to the Water Center in 10 years and it was Beautiful! Went there today and what a mess. The water falls, streams and brooks were full of green slime. No attention to plants or flowers and the tanks that hold the fish is so stank from moss and muck, that I could barely see the starving fish. What a disgrace for anyone out of town or in town to see. Shame on you, City of Wichita 😡

The water looked like it hasn't been maintained.

I love this place and that’s just the outside! The huge fish tanks and the fountains are fun in themselves! When we were there, there were TONS of baby frogs (size of your finger nail) in the fountain so that made it worth it to me!

This is one of the"need to visit" places. I was impressed with how much you learn about the river wildlife.
