Sponsorship and Donations   

 There are always projects underway at the pumping station. We continually are expanding the attractions and replacing time expired equipment.

    Many projects are "on the shelf" as we just cannot finance them at the present time. Would you be able to help us by contributing towards their costs? Donations large and small are what keeps the museum open and expanding. Any donations are very welcome to assist with pushing the museum forward.

    If you feel able to assist by donating please contact us to talk about it or alternatively there is the Paypal donate button on the left.

    Thank You from all of the volunteers at the museum.
