Facts

  • The water treatment plant is named after John Dye, a chemist for the Lansing Board of Water and Light.
  • A 32-foot limestone relief titled "Aquarius" rises above the main entrance on Cedar Street, and represents the distribution of water to the city of Lansing.
  • The building's grand, two-story lobby features a decorative fountain designed by Clivia Calder. The lobby is also filled with murals depicting water's destructive and beneficial elements.
  • This building was constructed as a WPA (Works Projects Administration) project.
  • The plant can condition up to 40 million gallons of water per day, reducing water hardness caused by calcium carbonate from 400 parts per million to 85-100 parts per million using lime and soda ash to remove the calcium carbonate from raw well water.
