WaterWorks is located in the Charleston Heights Pumping Station, an operational pumping facility that serves water to residents and businesses in the Las Vegas community. WaterWorks is the only place in Southern Nevada with a behind-the-scenes look at the journey water takes to reach your tap. The exhibit can be accessed via a .25 mile walk or a train ride to the Boomtown 1905 depot, along the Exploration Loop Trail.
