Community Space

Educational Lobby

Inside our new LEED Platinum Environmental Center is a world-class community educational lobby. This lobby features museum-quality interactive exhibits that illustrate how much water people use in their homes, how AlexRenew transforms dirty water, and how we recover resources from the water we clean. You can see our reclaimed water in action in our 7,000- gallon fish tank and biowall. School groups and teachers, adult learners, community organizations, water sector professionals, and other community members who want to become better water stewards are all invited to drop by during business hours (M-F 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) or request a walking tour.

Together, we created one of the largest native plant restoration projects in Alexandria right here at AlexRenew. Click here to read more about the project.

Four Mile Run Education Station

With input from neighbors of our Four Mile Run Pump Station, we designed and constructed an interactive, educational fence around the pump station. Located next to Cora Kelly School, it incorporates exhibits that inspire water stewardship and demonstrate water infrastructure. We invite you to come and learn about how water gets dirty, how it is transported from your home or business to AlexRenew, and how we clean recover resources from your dirty water.
