The Water Works (June 2012)

 It is a rare and remarkably intact testament to American ingenuity. But now The Water Works, a time capsule of 19th-and 20th-century technology that faithfully served the burgeoning population  for nearly a century, is threatened by a county proposal to demolish virtually this entire intact industrial complex in order to create an artificial "ruin." The main issues of The Water Works are the stewardship of public resources, environmental concerns and the ability of the people to safeguard their heritage.
