The Oldest Water Plant
The Petrolia Water Works was established in ca. 1897 to provide water to a growing thirsty town. Everything that came from the ground tasted like oil and the wells were contaminated. Water was brought in by horse drawn cart from Lake Huron and Petrolia had to find a better way. For a more detailed look at the Petrolia Water Works take a look at PETROLIA WATER
