Water Treatment Plant


Function and aesthetics are addressed in the multi-faceted sculptural installations throughout the renovated plant campus; telling the story of how Salinas water is made safe to use and drink every day. Storage tank relief designs provide a bold and night-lit reference to natures methods of moving water through root systems, while tubular pipe sculptures depict man-made networks which move water both above and below ground. These large- scale blue metalworks also offer creative solutions to street closure, plant entrance designation, protective traffic bollards, a water-sample-size mailbox, and a historic listing of the streams, creeks and rivers that supply water to the Salina community.
