2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the City of Bremerton’s most remarkable resource: a clean and reliable drinking water supply. The city’s rich history is interwoven with the history of its water system; its largest customer, the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard; and the visionary accomplishments of the water system founders.
To commemorate this anniversary, a new water history exhibit is being presented at the Kitsap History Museum at 280 4th Street in downtown Bremerton. The exhibit opened with a First Friday special event on April 7. The exhibit will be at the museum from April through September, 2017.
As part of National Drinking Water Week activities, The Bremerton Water Utility is sponsoring a free admission day at the museum on Wednesday May 10 from 10:00 – 4:00. Additionally, the first 50 Bremerton water customers visiting the museum that day will receive a free reusable water bottle.
“100 years into its operation, we celebrate the foresight of water professionals who built a drinking water system anchored by Casad Dam and delivered by a complex network of pipes, pump stations and reservoirs to serve a growing city through the war years and beyond,” said Bremerton Mayor Patty Lent, “Continued conscientious operation, maintenance, and watershed protection ensure excellent quality at the tap. The past inspires us to be responsible water system stewards as we look forward to the next century of customer service.”
The Kitsap County Historical Society and Museum collects, preserves, and exhibits the diverse culture, heritage and history of Kitsap County for the education and enjoyment of the public.
