Water Treatment Plant

Donald K. Shine Water Treatment Plant

Lake Michigan Water Supply System

The City of Wyoming has been using Lake Michigan as a source of drinking water since 1966.  The City’s current water supply system has a service population of approximately 230,000 people in Wyoming and various wholesale customer communities.

Our water supply system serves residents in areas of Zeeland, Park, Olive, Blendon, Holland, Georgetown, Jamestown, Gaines and Byron Townships, the Cities of Hudsonville and Grandville, a portion of Kentwood and the City of Wyoming.

Water Treatment Plant improvements over the years have expanded the treatment capacity of the plant from its original 32 million gallons per day to 120 million gallons per day to meet the demands of Wyoming and customer communities which have grown significantly since the early 1960s.

 

Plant Tour Information

Tours are an important part of the community outreach effort, particularly as part of our environmental education programs.  There are no better examples of applied science than at our Drinking Water and Clean Water facilities.

Our 1 to 2-hour Drinking Water Plant tour includes looking through a microscope to get to know microbes up-close and personal.  Walking tours of the plant can be scheduled Monday - Thursday, between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.  Tour participants must be 8 years of age or older.
