     History
    In the mid-1990’s it was becoming quite clear that the existing facilities were not going to meet either community demand for water supply or future water quality standards proposed by regulatory agencies.
    The city made the decision in 1997 to build a new, state-of-the-art facility, which would use the latest filtration techniques and advanced membrane technologies to provide superior water quality to Appleton’s customers.
    Appleton shut down the plant in August 2001 after building and opening the new water treatment plant on Manitowoc Rd. in Menasha.

     Future Plans
    now completely demolished. the future of the land is uncertain as of now. the land is considered 'parkland', but the riverfront location is ideal for commercial or residential use.
