Dating from the year 1900, the Riverside Pumping Station is a relic from a time when civic pride extended to facilities that we now take for granted. It’s a little-known jewel, located on Waterway Boulevard just northwest of IUPUI’s campus. It is still in use today by the Indianapolis Water Company. A decade ago, I worked across the street and marveled at it from afar, but it’s even more impressive up close. This was actually the first time I’ve seen it from this distance.
