South Seattle: See the Source of Your Drinking Water

South Seattle: See the Source of Your Drinking Water

From the Cedar River Municipal Watershed:

Have you ever wondered where your water comes from? This summer you can see for yourself by taking a tour of Seattle’s primary source of water, the Cedar River Municipal Watershed.

Just 35 miles east of downtown Seattle, the 91,000+ acre watershed is normally off-limits to people to protect water quality. But through special tours you can get a glimpse behind the scenes to learn how Seattle Public Utilities has been supplying great water to customers for over 100 years.

All tours begin and end at the Cedar River Watershed Education Center on the shores of Rattlesnake Lake near North Bend. Signature Tours are offered every weekend from July 8 through September 3 this year.
