Inside Look At Lansing's Hidden Gem

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - BWL's John Dye Water Conditioning Plant is being called Lansing's "hidden gem."

On Tuesday morning, 6 News took a tour of the plant, highlighting some recent renovations.

Once the public enters the plant they're greeted by large murals in the lobby.

As visitors enter the newly lit filter gallery, which looks like a James Bond movie lair with its impressive architectural design, they see a new pump that helps the plant distribute over 40 million gallons of water per day.

The plant also received new piping, valving and lighting.

Workers at the plant are excited about the new freight elevator that will take them seven floors high. But at the end of the day, what really gets the employees "pumped" is the chance to do something impactful at a hidden gem of a locale. 

"One of the cool things about it is that we make water, which everybody uses, everybody needs, so it's definitely helpful to our community and not just that the building itself is such an architectural gem and so cool. Every room has something different. It's a little piece of history, it's a great place to work," said Alex Martin, employee.

The renovation project is expected to be completed in 2014.
