Tour Information

** 2018 Update ** Due to large-scale construction projects ongoing within the plant, tours are suspended until further notice. We hope to resume the tours after construction is completed.

The Akron Water Reclamation Facility is proud of the services we provide for the residents of Akron as well as the communities within our collection system. In an effort to share our accomplishments, WRF provides tours to a variety of different organizations and individuals.

Tour guidelines:

  • Tours must be scheduled in advance, preferably at least seven (7) days prior to the requested tour date.
  • Tours are available Monday through Friday from 7am to 2 pm. Special circumstances may allow this timeframe to be adjusted.
  • Tours agendas can be adjusted to meet the needs of the tour group. A complete tour of the facility includes the plant and lab and takes 2 to 2½ hours. Adjustments can be made based on time and content requests.
  • ALL tour attendees must be at least 12 years old.
  • Tour sizes are generally limited to 15 attendees unless prior arrangements are made.
  • No open toed shoes or sandals are allowed.
  • Tours are walking tours and include stairs, uneven surfaces, etc.  A full tour includes approximately 1½  miles of walking.

If you, or your group, are interested in touring the Akron Water Reclamation Facility please contact Tom Sanderson via phone, (330) 375-2963 x 7144, or email [email protected].
