The Delaware County Historical Society (DCHS) has released details on an upcoming community program highlighting the history of Delaware County’s water systems.

The event is free to the public and will take place on Tuesday, May 23, beginning at 7:00 PM at the Barn at Stratford (2690 Stratford Road, Delaware).

Glenn Marzluf, CEO & General Manager for Del-Co Water Company, will discuss how the visionaries that started Del-Co Water recognized that Delaware County needed a better water supply to grow and how they made it happen. Marzluf will also discuss the history of municipal water systems from the heyday of mineral spring spas, sanitariums and more primitive water collection methods to the modern convenience many of us may take for granted today.

“Most of us might not consider the luxury of the clean, easy-to-access water we use in our homes every day,” said Donna Meyer, DCHS Executive Director. “This interesting program will allow us to learn more about one of our most basic necessities and gain greater appreciation for the efforts of ancestors. We’re fortunate to have Mr. Marzluf joining us to share his unique expertise and open up a part of history many of us may not think about.”
