Spillway Park
& Museum

A group of interested citizens, city and public power officals and university administrators began preservation efforts in 1987. These foresighted people had three goals:
  1. To stop further deterioration of the land and buildings
  2. To landscape the power plant site in order to provide a place of beauty for both the university and city.
  3. To create a museum celebrating the role of water and electric power and irrigation in the development of this area.
