    Originally built in 1875, and added on to in 1899, this limestone building was the first to pump drinking water into the city of Ottawa. An open aqueduct has driven the turbines for many years, and continues to do so today, however instead of drawing untreated water directly from the river, it has been drawing water from a 4' watermain originating at the Lemieux Island Filtration Plant. In recent years it has been renovated internally. The watermain from the filtration plant was replaced in 2006. In the winter of 2006 the aqueduct was temporarily dammed to allow for repairs to the concrete and limestone channel.
