N. Fork Reservoir Tours

Where does your water come from?
RiverLink and the City of Asheville invite all youth and school groups to venture out to Black Mountain to tour the North Fork Reservoir and learn about the processes necessary to facilitate and distribute safe drinking water throughout the community.

The tour takes around 1 1/2 hours and topics discussed include:

  • Watershed dynamics
  • Filtration and chlorination
  • Water quality testing
  • Distribution and control operations

Reservations are required. Please contact Keisha Lipe, City of Asheville Stormwater Quality Specialist for tour reservations.

For more information about RiverLink’s water quality education program, please contact the Education Coordinator at 828-252-8474 x18 or education@riverlink.org.

“People shouldn’t take water for granted any more than they should take food or any other fuel for granted.  In the near future clean water will become more and more a scarce and important commodity in the world. It’s really a miracle that we can just turn on a faucet and expect clean water to gush forth.

-Wilma Dykeman
