Discover the Artefact Collection at the C.I.EAU


With more than 400 pieces from various eras, the C.I.EAU collection recounts the evolution of water treatment technologies in a unique and exceptional way. Since the arrival of computers in the 1980s, many objects, machines, equipment and other tools have been quietly replaced as water treatment plants have been upgraded. The team at the C.I.EAU has taken care to preserve outstanding examples from these eras while welcoming new generation pieces or prototypes of future technologies.

Get up close and personal with the reality of the water world through our artifacts that witness the evolution of the supply and treatment of this resource. See the objects used for water treatment. Discover the machinery and all the historical elements that contributed to the establishment of our current drinking water systems.
