Where did we get the Water Wagon?
Madison’s one and only Water Wagon is truly an original. It was designed and created right here by Madison Water Utility employees. The wagon started out as little more than a sketch from a brainstorming session led by expert engineer Kelly Miess in the fall of 2011 – check out that stick man!
Then came a real design drawing from our talented welder/fabricator Mike Draper.
By January of 2012, construction was underway at our Paterson St. Operations Center.
Do those tap handles look familiar?
Finally, after months of planning, design and fabrication, the Water Wagon debuted at the 2012 Ride the Drive and has been quenching thirsts across Madison ever since. Take a look our weekly Water Wagon schedule to find out where you can find us. Stop by and say hi, and help yourself to a drink of clean, refreshing and reliable Madison water!
