"The John Dye Water Conditioning Plant is located on South Cedar Street, east of downtown Lansing. Named for a former BWL chemist, the plant has the capacity to condition and distribute 40 million gallons of water per day. The Dye Plant’s architecture reflects the art deco style prevalent when it was built in 1939 as a project of the Works Project Administration (WPA). In the plant’s lobby large murals painted by artists Frank Cassara and Charles Pollock depict the beneficial and destructive forces of water." - source Lansing State Journal.
The John Dye Water Conditioning Plant was host to the 2013 Historical Society of Greater Lansing's Silent Auction event. The funds raised through the silent auction will help HSGL continue its efforts to build a collection of historical Lansing artifacts as we work to found a future Lansing area history museum.
|Guests of the auction event enjoyed bidding on a variety of items donated to help raise money for the HSGL.|
