Visitors to the museum can play water-related trivia, use an iPad to take a peek inside wastewater treatment, and play with a real treadle pump to see how the pump moves water over a water wheel. Local artifacts on display will include items related to the Greeley Ice and Storage Company, and a water clock used to measure water levels at the head gate for Union Colony Ditch No.3.
